In  the  action  between  the  Nymph  and  the 
Cleopatra,  Lieutenant  Amherst  Morris  was 
serving  under  Lord  Exmouth,  then  Captain 
Pellew,  knighted  for  his  bravery  in  that  bat- 
tle, and  Lieut.  Morris  received  his  promotion 
on  the  same  account.  Honourable  mention 
is  made  of  him  in  the  naval  histories,  which 
vary  much  in  their  accounts  of  this  cele- 
brated engagement,  the  first  successful  fri- 
gate action  in  the  first  French  revolutionary 
war.  Mr.  James's  Naval  History,  gene- 
rally considered  the  most  correct,  contains 
a  very  detailed  account,  see  vol.  i.  p.  96,  &c. 
of  the  new  edition  by  Captain  Chamier,  R.N. 
The  engravings  of  the   action  subjoin  the 

following  account  of  it.  "  The  English  luul 
23  men  killed  and  25  wounded,  the  Frencli 
lost  30  killed,  among  whom  was  Captain 
MuUon,  the  first  captain,  and  29  wounded, 
and  the  second  captain.  In  the  beginnim; 
of  the  action,  the  Nymph  shot  a-head  to 
board  the  enemy,  and  by  a  well-timed  nui- 
no'uvre  shot  away  her  mainmast  and  dis- 
abled her  rudder,  then  by  a  second  great 
manoeuvre,  they  disabled  her  bowsprit  and 
exposed  her  to  a  raking  fire  from  the  whole 
broadside,  after  which  the  ships  were  laid 
along  side,  and  the  enemy  boarded  and 
carried."  The  action  took  place  18th  June,

Mrs.  Maria  Morris,  of  York,  died  25th 
September,  1836,  exceedingly  regretted  by 
all  her  friends,  and  more  especially  by  tlie 
poor  of  that  city,  to  whom  she  was  emi- 
nently kind  and  charitable,  aged  seventy, 
having  been  born  3rd  March,  1766.  Her 
remains  are  deposited  in  the  family  vault 
in  St.  Saviourgate  Church,  York,  where 
also  an  inscription  is  recorded  to  her  me- 
mory. Mary  Philipse,  before  her  union 
with  Colonel  Roger  Morris,  had  refused  the 
hand  of  the  celebrated  George  Washington, 
who  was  greatly  attached  to  her.

Eaton  liishop,  Herefordsliire,  who  has  since  tlie  decease 
of  his  lather  taken  tlie  additional  surname  of  Vigor, 
and  lias  issue.  He  is  son  of  the  late  Venerable  Arch- 
deacon Timothy  Stonliouse  V  ii^or,  grandson  of  Sir  James 
Stonhouse,  hart,  and  ^rauihiepliew  of  the  late  Lord 
JJishop  of  Hereford,  (for  a  detailed  account  of  the 
family  of  Stonhouse,  see  BuiiKic's  Peerage  and  Baronet-

Dr.  Taylor  is  distinguished  in  the  science  of  Medicine,  and  was  formerly  one  of  his 
present  Majesty's  Physicians.    Amongst  the  many  flattering  proofs  of  universal  respect 

•  GovEUNon  lifRT,  whose  st?at  was  Maiden  Earlei<i;h,  in  lierkshire,  was  not  only  of  distinj;uished 
birth,  but  collaterally  atid  by  marriage  connected  witli  many  leadin;^  fainilit'S.  One  of  the  Hurts  wed- 
ded i^Iiss  .Morgan,  and  hence  the  connection  with  Sir  (liarles  Morgan,  of  Tredej^ar,  whose  dauiihter 
married  Lord  Kudney.  Mis  niece  also  married  Admiral  Cumberland,  whose  sister  was  the  wife  of  the 
Lord  Frt'ilcnck  Hnifinck.  Governor  liurt  and  his  lady  were  also  closely  connected  with  the  \'iscount 
li«rrin;^t(in,  and  with  Lady  Affleck,  whose  dauj^hter  first  married  Sir  Godfrey  Webster,  and  subseijuently 
Lord  Holland,  (see  Huhkk's  l^eerage  and  Buronetn^e,  and  Fnmili)  of  Foster  <i/'  Jirickliili).  His  Kx- 
celUmcy  representi'd,  previously  to  his  appointment  in  the  West  Indies,  the  borough  of  Keadino'  in 
parliament.  In  liis  govt'rninent  he  was  most  active,  and  expended  a  very  larfje  sum  upon  the  forti- 
fications, which  has  never  been  repaid.  For  his  services  he  received  the  Kinj^'s  thanks  and  the  pro- 
mise of  a  peera;;e,  but  died  suddeidy  at  his  government  before  it  was  completed.  L^pon  his  daugliter's 
return  to  Kn^land  she  married  Itichard  Massey  Hansard,  esq.  There  is  a  sinji^nlar  circumstance  con- 
nected with  Governor  Hurt's  decease.  On  the  day  twelvemonth  preceding,  as  he  sat  at  dinner  with  a 
larjje  party  at  the  Government  House,  he  laid  duwn  his  knife  and  fork,  and  inipiired  if  they  had  seen 
n  person  pass  towards  his  private  apartment,  whom,  he  remarked,  he  knew  to  be  dead  :  however,  he 
was  rallied  by  his  friends,  but  nn  the  exact  anniversary  he  was  found  lifeless  in  Iiis  niom,  not  having" 
runjf  for  his  vulet  tn  dress  him  for  dinner.  Mrs.  'I'aylor's  mother,  afterwards  .Mrs.  Hansard,  was  with 
him  in  the  West  Indies  at  the  time.  Her  husband,  Uiciiakd  Masslv  ILtNSAitn,  estp  an  Irishman  by 
birth,  and  prior  to  his  marriage  a  captain  in  the  kinj^'s  service,  resided  at  Miskin  House,  GI:Hnory;anshire, 
«nd  held  the  majority  of  that  county  militia  at  the  period  of  his  decease.  His  family  was  a  scion  of  the 
nncuMit  and  kni<{htly  house  of  Hansard  of  Lincolnshire,  which  is  fully  recorded  in  the  several  visitations 
and  other  public  records.  He  was  son  and  nephew  of  oHicers  who  both  fell  at  Hunker's  Hill,  j^randson 
ol  John  Hansard,  esq.  of  Lazar  Hill.  Dublin,  nephew  of  Huph  Josias  Hansard,  es<|.  the  j^reat  army 
atjpnt,  and  the  direct  lineal  descendant  of  Sir  Uiehard  Hansard,  who  received  the  honour  of  kni^ht- 
htHid  from  Jaiijs  IL  and  was  the  lirsl  who  settled  ni  Ireliuid.  Major  Hansard  married,  first,  Louisa, 
dauphler  of  his  F.xcellcncy  W.  M.  Hurt,  the  governor  of  the  Leeward  Islands,  and  secondly,  Lydia, 
daughter  of  Uavid  'rhomas.  esq.  of  l*wher«ch,  Glnmorg^anshire,  but  had  issue  only  bv  the  former. 

Major  Hansard  died  of  cholera  in  |H()(>,  universally  lamented,  and  wr<  interred  with  mihtar)'  honours 
at  Had:*ham,  in  Sussex.     Hi3  daughter,  Ku/.a-Uahha.\i,  m.  ati  in  the  text,  to  Juun  Ta^  i.ou,  esip  M.D. 



and  esteem  he  has  gained,  we  cannot  omit  mentioning  the  gratifying  testimonial  he 
received  about  two  years  since  by  the  public  presentation  in  Bristol  of  some  splendid 
pieces  of  plate  from  the  Duchess  of  Kent  and  his  friends,  bearing  a  highly  compli- 
mentary inscription,  and  in  which  Dr.  Taylor  is  styled  "  The  Poor  Man's  Friend." 
At  the  last  election  he  offered  himself  a  candidate  for  the  representation  of  Poole,  but 
a  serious  illness  prevented  his  going  to  the  poll. 


It  appears  from  the  various  records,  that 
this  family  uuqupstionably  derives  from  the 
Royal  Houses  of  Enf;land,  Scotland,  and 
France,  and  that  its  ancestors,  the  Gordons, 
Dawtiu;\s,  8cc.  were  not  more  distinguislied 
for  liigh  birth,  than  for  brilliant  talent,  and 
public  services.  A  remarkable  circumstance 
is  also  connected  with  it — a  collateral  descent 
not  only  from  the  Great  Reformer  Luther, 
hut  likewise  from  a  most  pious  and  excellent 
.divine  of  the  Church  of  Rome,  Father  Clerk, 
confessor  to  the  Grand  Duke  of  Tuscany. 

Dr.  Taylor  is  the  reiiresentative  and  heir 
of  liis  Excellency  the  late  GeneralGoudon, 
Governor  of  Pensylvania,  and  the  next  also 
to  tlie  Laird  of  Cli'nv  in  that  distinguislied 
branch  of  the  noble  clan  and  ducal  house  of 
Gordon.  We  shall  therefore  commence  with 
a  brief  sketch  of  the  Gordon  family,  until  it 
merges  in  the  immediate  line  of  Taylor. 

Alexander,  3rd  Ea rl  or  Huntley,  (whose 
mother  was  the  Princess  Jean,  daughter  of 
James  L  King  of  Scotland,  and  whose  grand- 
mother was  Lady  Jane  Beaufort,  daughter 
of  John,  first  Earl  of  Somerset,  and  grand- 
daughter of  John  of  Gaiint),  died  16th 
January,  1523-4,  having  had,  by  the  Lady 
Jean  Stewart  his  wife,  daughter  of  John, 
Earl  of  Atboll,  several  sons  and  daughters : 
of  the  former, 

John,  Lord  Gordon,  died  vita  patris, 
leaving  a   son   George,  who  s.   his 
grandfather  in  the  Earldom  of  Hunt- 
ley, and  was  ancestor  of  the  Dukes 
OF  Gordon.  (See  Burke's  Peerage.) 
William,  became  Bishop  of  Aberdeen. 
Alexander,  was  Laird  of  Strathhaven. 
The  son, 

Alexander  Gordon,  Laird  of  Strat- 
haven,  wedded  the  youngest  daughter  of 
John  Grant,  of  Grant,  by  Elizabeth  his  wife, 
daughter  of  John,  Cth  Lord  Forbes,  and 
granddaughter  of  John,  Earl  of  Athol,  and 
had  two  sons,  Alexander  and  John.  The 

Alexander  Gordon,  changed,  after  liis 
father's  decease,  the  lands' of  Stratlihaven 
for  the  barony  of  Cluny.  He  m.  a  daughter 
of  Ogilvie,  of  Banff,  but  having  an  only 
daughter,  he  was  s.  by  bis  brother, 

John  Gordon,  of  Cluny,  who  m.  Marga- 
ret, daughter  of  Gordon  of  Cragallie  and 
Achpnive,aud  had  two  sons:  tlie  elder.  Sir 
Thomas  Gordon,  succeeded  at  Cluny,  while 
the  yoiniger, 

John  Gordon,   became   Laird  of  Bris- 

more,  and  marrying  Gordon  of  Lismor's 
daughter,  had  a  son, 

John  Gordon,  of  Peltans,  who  espoused 
Beatrix,  daughter  of  Sir  Patrick  Leslie,  knt. 
of  Edine,  and  had  a  son, 

John  Gordon,  of  Aberdeen  who  married 
Christian,  daughter  of  Robert  Smith,  esq. 
and  had  a  sou. 

Major  General  Patrick  Gordon,  a  dis- 
tinguished and  gallant  officer,  who  served 
during  twenty  years  in  the  Royal  regiment 
of  Foot,  commonly  called  Dumbarton's  re- 
giment, (recently  commanded  by  the  Duke 
of  Gordon),  and  became  eventually  Governor 
of  Pensylvania.  He  m.  3rd  April,  1695, 
(O.  S.)  Isabella,  daughter  of  William  Clerk, 
esq.  barrister-at-law,  and  sister  of  Father 
Clerk,*  confessor  to  the  King  of  Spain  and 
to  tlie  Grand  duke  of  Tuscany,  and  had  (with 
other  issue,  who  all  d.  unm.)  a  daughter, 

Philadelphia  Gordon,  named  from  the 
place  of  her  nativity,  who  became  the  heir- 
ess, last  survivor,  and  representative  of  her 
family.     This  lady  wedded 

Colonel  Abraham  TAYLOR,t  military 
secretary  to  her  father,  and  the  lineal  de- 
scendant of  George  Taylor,  esq.  of  Derby- 
shire, a  magistrate  for  that  county,  and 
an  East  India  merchant.  Mrs.  Taylor  out- 
lived her  husband,  whose  decease  occurred 
in  February,  1772 ;  and  died  in  Bath,  17th 
March,  1793,  leaving  an  only  son, 

John  Taylor,  esq.  of  the  Circus,  Bath, 
and  of  Grosvenor  Place,  London  ;  so  cele- 
brated for  his  talents  as  an  amateur  in  paint- 
ing, and  the  friend  of  Garrick,  Gibbon, 
Franklin,  Coleman,  and  the  other  wits  and 
literati  of  his  day.  None  of  Mr.  Taylor's 
exquisite  productions  were  ever  sold, J  hut 
are  principally  in  the  possession  of  his  daugh- 
ter, Mrs.  Charlotte  Taylor,  and  his  grand- 
son. Dr.  Taylor.  These  splendid  eflbrts 
are    mentioned   in  "  Humphrey   Clinker," 

*  There  was  a  correspondence  between  Father 
Clerk  and  his  English  relatives,  on  the  subject 
of  their  religious  difierences,  in  which  Archbishop 
Tillotson  took  part.  Many  of  the  original  letters 
of  this  excellent  divine,  Father  Clerk,  are  still  in 
jMrs.  Charlotte  Taylor's  possession. 

t  The  Tavlor  family  suffered  severely  by  the 
American  independence,  but  it  does  not  appear 
that  the  family  ever  claimed  or  obtained  any  re- 
compense from  the  crown,  on  this  account,  or 
in  consideration  of  Governor  Gordon's  services. 

{  Two  were  presented  by  Dr.  Taylor  to  George 


and  other  works,  and  highly  commended  by 
some  beautiful  lines  of  the  Rev.  Richard 
Graves.^  Gifted  with  great  abilities  himself, 
Mr.  Taylor  invarial)ly  befriended  genius  iu 
others,  and  was  the  lirst  to  notice  tlie  cele- 
brated Benjamin  West,  at  that  time  a  Coo- 
per's son  in  Fhiladelpliia.  Mr.  Taylor  m. 
at  Clifton  4th  .June,  17(i3,  Rebecca,  daughter 
of  Richard  Luther,  esij.  of  Myles's,  in  Es- 
sex, (see  family  of  Luther),  and  had,  with 
junior  issue, 

John,  his  heir. 
He  d.  8th  November,  1806,  and  his  decease 
is  thus  recorded  in  the  Batli  paper  of  that 
day  ;  "  On  Saturday  died  at  his  house  in 
tliis  city  .John  Taylor,  esq.  Upon  most  sub- 
jects of  science  and  literature  few  men  were 
better  informed,  but  his  excellence  as  a 
landscape  painter  will  long  be  known  to  the 
world,  from  the  beautiful  engravings  taken 
from  some  of  his  celebrated  pictures.  His 
house  in  this  city,  some  years  since,  was 
resorted  to  by  all  persons  distinguished  for 
talent  ar,d  gunius."  The  following  lines 
were  written  by  David  Garriek.  upon  seeing 
Mr.  Taylor's  pictures  and  hearing  a  connois- 
seur declare,  "  T/iei/  were  Jinelij  painted  for

of  Hr.NKY  VIII.  and  undoubtedly  allied  to 
the  celebrated  Reformer,  the  Luthers  re-

marrying with  the  leading  families  of  tliat 
county,  representing  it  in  parliament,  and 
exercising  paramount  influence  in  its  local 
government.*  Like  so  many  other  great 
families  who  formerly  adorned  tlie  country, 
and  |)ossessed  great  sway  and  possessions,

The  descent  of  the  family  of  Dawtrey, 
authenticated  by  the  several  visitations,  is 

*   Chamherlen,  of  Alderton  Hall,  and  Hinton  Hall. 
(Now   represented    by   Major-General    Northey 

Hopkins,  John  Fane,  esq.  and  John   Taylor, 

esq.  M.D.) 

The  family  of  Chambeblen,  or  as  it  was  an- 
ciently written,  Chamberlin  and  Chamderlatne, 
is  one  of  s^reat  anti(iuity,  having  been  settled  in 
Suflblk  from  the  period  of  the  conquest.  Dr. 
Chamherlen  was  a  physician  of  London,  of  great 
eminence  about  the  court,  as  physician  to  Queen 
Ann.  In  his  last  will  and  testament  he  names 
his  wife  as  the  Lady  Crewe,  and  makes  mention 
of  the  Cimntess  of  Arran  and  the  Duke  and 
Duchess  of  Buckingham.  The  estates  of  Aider- 
ton  Hall,  and  Hinton  Hall,  which  for  many  years 
were  the  undivided  property  in  equal  moities,  of 
John  Taylor,  esq.  and  General  Northey  Hopkins, 
have  been  disposed  of. 

Dr.  Chamherlen  m.  first,  Mary,  daughter  and 
sole  heir  of  Nathaniel  Bacon.  es(|.  of  Friston  Hall, 
in  Suffolk  (see  pedigree  of  Northey-Hopkiss, -of 
OviNG  House)  ;  and  secondly,  Mary,  daughter  of 
Sir  Willoughby  Aston,  bart.  of  Aston,  Cheshire, 
and  relict  of  Sir  John  Crewe,  knt.  of  Utkington. 
By  his  first  wife  he  left  three  daughters,  his  co- 
heirs, viz. 

]\Iarv,  d.  unm. 

Anna-Maria,  vi.  to  the  Right  Hon.  Edward 
Hopkins,  and  thence  descends  the  family 

deduced  in  an  uninterrupted  line  from  the 
Conquest  until  it  merges  in  that  of  Luther, 
and  now  also  represented  by  John  Fane,  esq. 
and  Dr.  Taylor.  Few  pedigrees  are  founded 
on  sucli  unquestionable  proof,  and  still  fewer 
present  more  brilliant  alliances,  or  more 
uniformly  preserved  their  station. 

John  de  Alta  Ripa,  obtaining  by  gift 
from  Jocelyne,  of  Louvaine,  the  manor  of 
HerynghamorHardham(then  called' Haul- 
trey')  assumed  in  one  of  the  early  Nor- 
man reigns  the  surname  of  Dehaultrey,  de 
Alta  Ripa,  or  Dawtrey.  He  was  grand- 
father of 

Joscelyne  de  Alta  Ripa,  who  had  two 
sons,  namely, 

I.  William,  who  founded  temp.  Hen- 
ry II.  the  priory  of  Heringham,  and 
endowed  it  with  considerable  posses- 
sious.f  His  granddaughter  and  heir- 

Eva,  wedded  Sir  Edward  St.  John, 
living  in  the  reign  of  Edward  I.J 
whose  line  eventually  merged  in 
the  family  of  Goring. 

II.  John. 
From  the  second  son, 

John  de  Haultrey,  lineally  descended 
Andrew  Dawtrey,  of  the  county  of  Sus- 
sex, who  left  by  Alice,  his  wife,  a  daughter 
of  the  ancient  family  of  Mill  of  Hampshire, 
two  sons, 

1.  John  (Sir),  knt.  who  espoused  Joan, 
daughter  and  heir  of  Peter  Scarde- 
ville,  and  had  an  only  daughter  and 
heiress,  Anne,  the  wife  of  Sir  John 

of  Northey  Hopkins,  one  of  whom  m.  Miss

Luther,  esq.  great  grandfather  of  Dr.  Tay- 
lor of  Clifton. 

t  Dugdale's  Monasticon.  In  recording  the  foun- 
dation of  Herryngham  priory,  by  William  Daw- 
trey, the  Monasticon  thus  speaks:  "  The  Latin 
word  '  Ripa,'  was  in  Norman  writings  generally 
meant  for  a  river,  without  relation  to  '  ripa'  a 
bank.  The  Romans  called  it  *  Haultrey.'  There 
was  an  ancient  family  of  knights,  owners  of  much 
lands  in  these  parts,  and  of  fair  possessions  even 
in  the  very  bosom  of  the  '  Hyh  stream,'  from 
which  they  took  their  name,  and  were  called 
'  De  Haultrey.'"

Estates — The  family  of  Taylor  had  con- 
siderahle  grants  of  land  in  America,  which 
were  of  course  forfeited  at  the  iudejieii- 
dence.  The  great  estates  of  the  Luther 
family  (ultimately  entailed  on  Dr.  Taylor) 
are  principally  situated  in  the  county  of  Es- 
sex. The  singularly  expressed  will  of  tlie 
late  John  Luther,  esq.  of  Myles's,  carries 
proof  of  the  momentary  feelings  under  which 
it  was  prohahly  made.  Being  separated 
from    his   wife    and    having   no   issue,   he 

adopted  his  nephew,  John  Taylor,  the  son  of 
his  favourite  sister  Rehecca,  but  that  gentle- 
man having  ofiended  him,  he  bequeathed  his 
possessions,  afterconsiderable  legacies,  to  his 
private  tutor.  Dr.  Watson,  (the  well  known 
Bishop  of  Landatf),  and  his  housekeeper 
Mrs.  Williams,  first  to  his  other  nephew, 
Francis,  the  second  son  of  his  sister,  Mrs. 
Fane,  and  then  to  the  elder  son  John 
Fane,  esq.  but  the  ultimate  reversion  he 
strictly  entailed  on  the  "Taylors,"  whom 
he  directs  to  assume  therewith  the  name  and 
arms  of  Luther  only,Jevidently  contemplating 
that  this  branch  of  his  family  would  perpe- 
tuate him. 

The  estate  of  Vicars  Hill,  bequeathed  to 
Dr.  Taylor's  father  by  Richard  Luther,  (who 
died  there,  having  relinquished  his  estate  of 
Myles  to  his  son  on  his  marriage,  and  lies 
interred  under  a  handsome  monument  in 
the  parish  church  of  Boldre),  was  sold  by 
him  to  Col.  Cleveland,  and  the  family  have 
subsequently  disposed  of  their  undivided 
moiety  of  Alderton  Hall  and  Hinton  Hall, 
Suffolk,  as  we  before  noticed.

they  were  originally  derived.  They  are 
comprehended  in  that  large  tract  of  country, 
which,  in  the  twelfth  century,  was  granted 
by  Alan,  the  high  steward,  to  the  Monks  of 
Melross,  as  mentioned  by  Crawfurd,  in  his 
Hist,  of  Renf.  edit.  1818,  p.  13S:  "Per 
divisas  suas,  inter  terram  de  Mauchlyn  et 
terrain  Gilberti  filii  Richeri,  cum  tota  pas- 
tura  forestae  sua;  usque  ad  divisas  de  Dune- 
glass  [Douglass .']  et  Lismaliague,  et  de 
Glengavil ;"  which  was  ratified  by  King 
William.  This  grant  appears  to  have  ex- 
tended to  the  marches  of  these  lands  men- 
tioned, but  not  beyond  them.  The  Glengiel, 
or  Glengavil,  is  a  muirland  streamlet,  rising 
among  the  hills,  a  mile  or  two  north-west 
of  the  village  of  Muirkirk,  and  joins  the 
Avon  about  three  miles  south-eastward  of 
the  town  of  Stratliaven  ;  so  that  this  grant 
included  that  muirish  part  of  Avondale  to 
the  westward  of  the  water  of  Gavil,  whilst 
the  parishes  of  Mauchline,  Sorn,  and  Muir- 
kirk, were  probably  wholly  included  within

"  The  Campbells  of  Auchmannoch,"  says 
Robertson,  "  have  been  respectable  land- 
holders, in  the  district  of  Kyle-Stewart,  for 
several  centuries.  The  lands  of  Auchman- 
noch, and  others,  formerly  and  still  belong- 
ing to  them,  are  situated  in  the  lordship  of 
Kylesmuir,  and  in  the  north  part  of  the 
parish  of  Sorn,  about  from  three  to  four 
miles  north-eastward  of  the  town  of  Maucii- 
line,  and  about  six  miles  south-eastward  of 
the  castle  of  Loudoun,  from  which  family 




tliat  abbey ;  and  from  time  to  time  after- 
wards feiu'd  out  tlie  remainder  to  various 
pro|)rietors.  This  religious  establishment 
at  Mauehline  continued  to  flourish  until  tlie 
Reformation,  when  the  hinds  belonsini;  to 
it  fell  to  the  sliare  of  the  family  of  Campbell 
of  Loudoun,  when  Mauehline  became  one 
of  their  titles,  which  continues  till  the  pre- 
sent day. 

Early  in  the  fifteenth  century  a  family  of 
Campbells  (lossessed  the  lands  of  Aiicbman- 
noeh,  under  a  churcb-holdinf;.  That  they 
were  the  ancestors  of  the  present  family  has 
always  been  held  as  undoubted  ;  but  their 
early  writs,  till  the  year  1506,  are  now  so 
much  obliterated  and  illegible,  as  to  afford 
no  particular  information  concerning  them 
prior  to  that  time.  That  they  are  also  de- 
scended of  the  family  of  Loudoun  has  been 
a  constant  tradition,  and  wliicli  indeed  car- 
ries every  mark  of  probability  with  it.  The 
first  of  them  that  appears  in  the  remaining 
writs  that  are  legible,  is 

AiiTHUH  CAMi'BiiLL,  of  Aucbmannoch,  who 
has  a  renewed  charter  from  the  Commen- 
dator  of  Melrose,  dated  8tli  August,  lotio, 
"  of  the  lands  of  Auchmannoch,  to  Arthur 
Campbell  and  Margaret  Cunniiighame,  his 
spouse,  in  life-rent,  and  to  their  son,  George 
Campbell,  in  fee."  This  Margaret  Cnn- 
liinghamc  should  seem  to  have  been  of  the 
family  of  (Japrington,  as  in  some  writs  about 
that  time,  partly  legible,  the  laird  of  Ca- 
l)rington,  appears  to  be  a  party. 

C,  roKcK  (Campbell,  of  Auchmannoch,  suc-

of  Aucbmannoch,  was  fined  in  £0(10,  without 
even  a  trial,  or  a  single  crime  alleged  par-

imprisonment.  At  a  contested  election  for

Lord  of  Were.  This  William,  with  his  kins- 
men Rafl'e  and  Gervase  Paganell,  are  after- 
wards described  amongst  the  most  active  of 
the  adherents  of  Earl  Handle  and  his  barons 
ill  sustaining  the  interests  of  the  Etupress 
Maude  and  her  son  Henuy  against  hiti;/ 
Sri:rH[:N,  which  services  were  rewarded 
by  the  earl  with  grants  of  lands  in  fee  out 
of  his  demesnes  in  Cheshire  and  elsewhere  : 
and  although  the  origin  of  the  grant  under 
which  tlie  fee  of  Pownall  (comprising  an 
entire  township),  i>assed  has  not  been  speci- 
fically recorded,  yet  the  presumption  is 
strongly  supported,  that  like  th(^  other  grants 
ill  the  sarae  locality,  it  was  the  recompense 
of  military  services. 

"Although  (says  Brooke)  from  the  seat  of 
their  projierty  in  Cheshire,  the  Pownalls 
were  denominated  according  to  the  true  liri- 
tish  cu'thography  of  the  name,  and  were  styled 
alter  the  Norman  custom  "de  I'ownall,"  yet 
they  were  at  tin'  same  lime  styU'd  in  the  re- 
cords, written  in  Norman,  Paiiiu  1,  I'ayanell, 
and  Paynel,  and  in  those  written  in  Latin 
I'aganell.  It  appears  on  the  register  that 
they  repeatedly  held  the  high  olhci'  of  Cbam- 
bcrlavue  to  the  kings, f  as  earls  of  Chester, 
in  till'  Kith  ol  KDHAiin  IL,  in  the  1st,  .'jth,

in  allusion  to  their  otlice  and  their  name,  they 
bore  for  a  crest  a  lion's  paw,  holding  a  gol-

The  elder  branch  of  the  family  residing  at

"  It  may  be  said  of  Governor  Pow- 
nali, that  in  every  station  of  life  lie 
sustained  a  liigh  character  for  ability, 
zeal,  and  rectitude  of  conduct.  In  tlie 
year  1753  he  succeeded  Sir  Thomas 
Danvers  Osborne,  hart,  in  his  office 
of  Lieutenant  Governor  of  New  Jer- 
sey. In  1757  he  was  appointed  Cap- 
tain General  and  Governor  of  Mas- 
sachusets  Bay,  and,  wlien  in  1761 
he  returned  to  this  country,  he  re-

General  of  the  office  of  Control,  with 
the  rank  of  Colonel  in  the  army,  un- 
der the  command  of  Prince  Ferdi-

elected  a  Fellow  of  the  Royal  Society, 
'and  in  1768  returned  to  parliament 
forTregony,  in  Cornwall."  Governor 
Pownali  was  the  author  of  numerous 
works  on  political  economy,  on  anti- 
quities, and  in  the  Archieologia  of  tlie 
Antiquarian  Society,  of  which  insti-

to  Liverpool,  and  rendered  himself  eminent 
as  a  merchant  in  that  great  commercial  place,,  i 
of  which  he  was  elected  Mayor  in  1767,  and 
died  before  the  close  of  his  year  of  office,  i 
owing  to  an  overzeal  in  the   discharge  of  j 
his  magisterial  duties.     A  local  periodical  [ 
publication,  in  announcing  this  worthy  gen- 
tleman's demise,  thus  concludes:  "  His  per- 
sonal virtues  were  well  known  to  all  who  had  | 
the  happiness  of  an  intimate  acquaintance 
with  him  ;  his  public  character  reflected  ho-  |

*  Hackney  House  was  erected  by  ]\Ir.  Brooks- 
biinli  in  the  reign  of  George  I.  at  an  expenditure 
of  upsvards  of  £28,000:  it  stood  in  a  lawn  of 
eighteen  acres,  surrounded  by  a  wall.  On  Mr, 
Brooksbank's  decease  it  was  sold  to  .T.  Hopkins, 
esq.  of  lirittons,  in  Essex,  heir  to  the  famous 
A'uhure  Hopkins,  concerning  whom  Pope  has  the 
following  lines  ; 

"  When  Hopkins  dies,  a  thousand  lights  attend 
The  wretch  that  living  saved  a  candle's  end." 

From  Mr.  Hopkins  it  passed  through  various 
hands,  and  finally,  in  1802,  tlie  building  was 
razed  to  the  ground,  the  whole  having  been  al- 
lotted for  building,  and  become  a  populous  neigh- 
bourhood. See  Universal  Magazine,  1791,  for

"This  old  and  respectable  family,"  says 
Gilbert,  in  liis  History  of  Cornwall,  "  has 
priucipally  resided   for  upwards   of    three 

centuries  in  the  parish  of  St.  Austell  and  St. 
Blazey  :  the  surname  of  Carlyon  in  connex- 
ion with  Cornwall  is  derived  from  very  re- 
mote antiquity,  for  besides  the  Barton  of 
Carljon,  near  Truro,  it  is  upon  record  that 
a  seaport  town  of  this  name  was  formerly 
in  existence  on  the  north-west  coast  of 
the  county."  Lyons  also  makes  mention 
of  the  family  in  the  Magna  Britannia. 
"  Carlyon,  or  Carlion,  is  supposed  by  Tomas, 
whose  romance  was  published  in  1804,  by 
Sir  AValter  Scott,  to  have  been  the  residence 
of  his  hero  Sir  Tristrem  ;  it  is  worthy  of  re- 
mark, that  among  the  more  remote  ancestors 
of  Mr.  Carlyon,  of  Tregrehan,  Tristrem 
occurs  as  a  christian  name  in  allusion  to  this 
celebrated  hero  of  romance:"  and  in  Drew's 
History  of  Cornwall  is  the  following  ac- 
count :  "  Herls,  when  speaking  of  this  an- 



cient  family  in  bis  Parochial  History,  says,

Kea  parish  called  Carlyon,  wliicb  signifies 
the  care,  watcli fulness  or  circumspection  of

*  The  name  of  Creyke  or  Creik  occurs  in 
earlv  times  in  Suftblk.  Margery  Creyke,  according- 
to  Dugdale,  founded  a  monastery  at  Fhxton,  in 
that  county  about  four  hundred  years  ago.  It  like- 
wise occurs  in  Cambridgeshire.  In  the  south  aisle 
of  the  nave  of  Westlev  W'aterlass  church  is  a  grave- 
stone with  figures  of  a  kniglit  and  his  lady,  engraved 
on  brass  plates,  under  canopies.  This  is  commonlv 
supposed  to  represent  Sir  .tolin  de  Creyke,  temj^.

in  1795,  and  assumed,  in  consequence,  the  surname  and  arms  of  Bernard. 





This  is  a  branch  of  the  house  of  Ber- 
nard, of  Castle  Bernard,  Earls  of  Baiulon, 
and  derives,  according  to  Thomas  Hawley, 
King  at  Arms  temp.  Henry  VIH.  from 
"Sir  Theophilus,  a  valiant  knyglite  of  Ger- 
man descent,  who  in  lOCfi,  accompanied 
William  the  Conqueror  to  England."  Sub- 
sequently we  find  the  Bernards  flourishing 
in  the  counties  of  Westmoreland,  York  and 

Sir  Theophilus,  who  was  son  of  SirEge- 
rett,  was  succeeded  by 

Sir  Dorbard,  the  first  surnamed  Bkr- 
NARD,  or  Fitz  Bernard.  His  descendants 
settled  at  Acornbank,  in  Westmoreland,  (ac- 
cording- to  the  authority  already  quoted)  and 
appear  to  have  continued  in  that  county  ibr

Mr.  Precentor  Lowe  is  a  magistrate  for  Shropshire. 


The  family  of  Lowe  was  established  in 
England  by  one  of  the  companions  in  arms 
of  the  Conqueror,  and  has  preserved  a  male 
succession  since  that  remote  era.  "  I  must 
not  forget,"  says  Mr.  Abingdon,  in  speaking- 
of  the  abbot  and  convent  of  Worcester,  "to 
mention  theyre  benefactors.  There  were  in 
thys  Lordshyp  twoe  auncient  inhabitantes ; 
one  Lowe,  wrytten  (formerly  and  still  pro- 
nounced heere  Lawe)  whose  auncestor  was 
one  of  the  captaynes  who  fought  under  Duke 
William  of  Normandye,  in  the  conquest  of 
England,  as  appeareth  in  a  rowle  most  ex- 
actly drawn  and  carefully  kept  in  Flanders, 
the  copy  whereof  was  sent  mee  by  a  gentle- 
man of  this  family,  to  give  me  light  in  the 
obscurity  of  antiquityes.  Neytlier  can  this 
derogat  from  Lowe  of  Shropsliire ;  where 
Guide  Lowe  de  Clive,  7th  Henry  VI.  was 
returned  into  the  excheckcr  to  attend  the 
King,  as  an  esquire,  qui  portabat  urma  ab 
ancestria ;  for  why  may  they  not  bothe 
springe  from  one  roote .'  But  to  return  to 
my  purpose ;  Steplianus  de  Lawe  (son  of 
Alanus  de  Lawe,  and  direct  ancestor  of  the 
family  before  us)  gave  all  his  land  in  Lawe- 
lield,  whicli  he  held  in  More,  of  the  moukes 
of  Worcester,  to  the  same  priory.  He  more- 
over, by  the  consent  of  Dionysia,  his  wife, 
gave  to  his  lords  tlie  said  prior  and  convent, 
in  pure  and  perpetual  alms,  certain  assart 
or  new  cleared  land,  called  the  Seken,  lying 
under  the  Menhey,  with  all  the  Grove  there ; 
but  for  the  surrender  of  these  and  other 
lands,  the  Priour  and  Menkes  yealded  him 
some  recompense  and  were  most  charitable 
to  him,  for  being  by  tlie  Jews  at  Worcester 
detained  in  prison,  and  loaded  with  heavy 

*  Low  is  the  old  English  word  for  a  small  hiU  ; 
and  the  seat  of  tlie  family  being  on  a  g;entle  eleva- 
tion on  the  north  sije  of  the  river  Feme,  they 
apparently  took  their  name  from  it. 

chains,  and  by  exquisite  torments  compelled 
to  redeem  himself,  his  said  lords  the  priour 
and  convent,  being  moved  with  pity,  and 
seeing  him  forsaken  of  all  his  friends,  did, 
by  the  expending  of  much  money,  free  him 
from  his  bonds,  and  restore  him  to  life  and 
liberty.  Thus  did  the  religious  deliver  him 
out  of  the  jawes  of  hys  cruel  creditors.  The 
other  auncient  gentleman  was  Penhull,  of 
wliom  Aluredus  de  Penhull,  falling  likewise 
into  the  merciles  handes  of  these  devouring 
usurarious  Jewes,  then  dwellinge  in  Wor- 
cester, was  also  by  the  Priour  and  Menkes 
redeemed  out  of  that  thralldome."  The  fa- 
mily continued  for  a  long  series  of  years 
resident  at  the  Lowe,  and  among  the  emi- 
nent persons  it  produced  in  early  times,  we 
may  mention  John  Lowe,  an  Augustine 
monk,  at  Worcester,  consecrated  bishop  of 
St.  Asaph,  in  1433,  Humphrey  Lowe,  high 
slieritf  of  .Shropshire,  in  1439,  and  Richard 
Lowe,  who  was  retained  to  serve  in  France 
with  one  man  at  arms  and  three  aixhers,

of  Lindridge,  Worcestershire,  head  of  this 
ancient  house  towards  the  close  of  the  16th 
century,  married  Anne  Foster,  and  was

wlio  had  such  a  reverence  for  tlie 
old  mansion  and  place  whence  he 
derived  his  name,  that  lie  left  this 
particular  clause  in  Iiis  will : 
"  Item.  I  will  that  my  house  at 
the  Lowe,  wherein  I  now  live, 
being  the  ancient  seat  of  my  an- 
cestors, be  from  time  to  time  kept

b.  in  1 79.5,  succeeded  to  the  estate  on  the  demise  of  his  father. 


This  ia  a  branch  of  the  royal  house  of 

John  Stewart,  the  first,  of  Urrard,  was 
lineally  descended  from  John  Stewart,  pro- 
genitor of  the  Athol  Stewarts,  who  was 
fourth  son  of  Alexander  Lord  Badenoch, 
Earl  of  Buchan,  a  younger  sou  of  King

ried a  daughter  of  Robertson,  of  Fascally, 
and  had,  with  other  issue,  Alexander,  his 
heir,  and  George,  of  Baloan.  Tradition 
affirms  that  this  Robert,  being  on  a  foray 
with  the  Marquis  of  Athol,  and  returning 
home  on  verbal  leave,  his  lands  of  Urrard 
were  seized  as  those  of  a  vassal  who  had 
deserted  his  lord  superior.  Craig  Urrard  is 
situated  behind  Blair  Castle,  and  the  site  of 
the  old  mansion  of  the  family  is  still  pointed

The  family  of  Entwisle  was  long  settled 
in  the  township  of  Enlwisle^  on  the  north- 
eastern extremity  of  the  hundred  of  Salford  ; 
and  Camden  speaks  of  Entwisle  Hall  in  his 
time  as  "a  neat  and  elegant  mansion,"  the 
residence  of  "  noble  proprietors  of  its  own 
name."  Of  its  distinguished  members  in 
early  times  was  Sir  Bertine  Entwisell, 
knight,  viscount  of  Bricqbec,  a  gallant  war-

Henry  VI.  He  participated  in  the  glory 
of  Agincourt,  and  contributed  by  his  valour

red  rose,  and  fell  slain  at  St.  Albans,  in

Ralph  Ferrers,  Sir  Bertine  Entwisell,  and 
many  esquires  and  gentlemen.  Over  the 
remains  of  Sir  Bertine,  who  was  interred  in 
St.  Peter's  church,  appeared,  until  recently, 
his  effigy  in  brass,  with  the  following  inscrip- 
tion :

was  borne  in  Lancashire,  and  was  Viscount  and

Constantine  ;  who  died  the  xxviii.  May,  in  the 
year  of  Lord  God  mcccclv.  on  whose  soule  God 
have  mercy.     Amen."

of  Sir  John  Ashton,  of  Ashton,  and  relict  of

gave  his  own  name  to  the  lauds  he  acc|uired  in  the 
county  of  lierivick.  There  was  a  tribe  of  the 
Nervi,  called  Gorduni,  settled  in  Keltic  Gaul, 
near  Gheiil,  mentioned  by  (':esar  forty  years  before 
tile  (.'hristian  a-ni.  Krom  thence  the  iamilies  set-

derived  their  names.  Tlieuncestor  of  the  Scottish

Adam  de  Goudun,  %v1io  possessed  an  estate 
in  England,  probably  in  right  of  liis  wife. 
He  is  summoned  to  attend  Kiny  Edward 
THE  First's  lieutenant,  at  Gloucester,  14tli 
June,  1287.     He  died  about  1295. 

The  Gordons  had  now  extended  them- 
selves, like  other  great  families,  beyond 
their  original  territories.  Adam  de  Gordon, 
who  flourished  at  the  end  of  the  thirteenth 
century,  was  the  common  progenitor  of  the 
Gordons  of  the  north,  and  of  the  Gordons  of 
Galloway.  The  Gordons  seem  not  to  have 
mingled  in  the  party  struggles  during  the 
minorities  of  Alexander  l\.  and  Alexander 
in.  Sir  Adam  de  Gordon  first  appeared 
like  a  gallant  knight  in  support  of  the  va- 
lourous  Wallace,  during  his  efforts  for  his 
country,  and  he  afterwards  contributed  his 
exertions  to  the  final  success  of  Robert 
Bruce.  Adam  de  Gordun,  the  son  of  Alicia, 
was  succeeded  by  his  son, 

Adam  de  Gordun,  warden  of  the  marches 
in  1300,  and  a  commissioner  of  Kiny  Ed- 
ward 1.  for  establishing  regulations  for 
Scotland  and  for  Lennox,  in  1304.  In 
an  agreement  with  the  monks  of  Kelso, 
29th  June,  1308,  he  is  designed  dominus 
Adam  de  Gordun  Miles,  After  the  battle  of 
Bannockburn,  in  June,  1314,  he  abandoned 
the  English  party,  was  received  into  favour 
by  Kinq  Robert  Bruce,  and  obtained  from 
him  a  g'rant  of  the  Lordship  of  Strathbolgie, 
with  its  appurtenances,  situated  in  the  shires 
of  Aberdeen  and  Banlf,  and  part  of  the  es- 
tates of  David  de  Strathbolgie,  the  faithless 
Earl  of  Athol.  He  granted  the  Glenkins,  in 
Galloway,  and  the  lauds  of  Stitchell,  in  Rox- 
burghshire, to  his  second  son,  William,  the 
progenitor  of  the  Viscounts  of  Kenmure, 
ennobled  in  1633,  and  of  the  other  Gordons, 
in  Galloway.  He  was  ambassador  from 
King  Robert  I.  to  the  pope  in  1320,  and 
eminently  concerned  in  all  the  public  trans- 
actions of  these  times.  Sir  Adam  fell  fight- 
ing for  his  country  in  the  battle  of  Halydon 
Hill,  1333.     His  eldest  son, 

Alexander  de  Gordun,  succeeded,  and 
was  slain  at  the  battle  of  Durham,  in  1346. 
His  son, 

John  de  Gordun,  was  taken  prisoner  with 
David,  at  the  battle  of  Durham,  and  not  re- 
leased until  13.57,  when  William  I.  Earl  of 
Douglas,  became  bound  as  one  of  his  sure- 
ties.    He  was  succeeded  by  his  son, 

John  de  Gordon,  a  celebrated  warrior. 
He  received,  in  1376,  from  Kii>y  Robert 
II.  a  grant  of  the  Barony  of  Strathbolgie,  in 
Aberdeenshire,  in  which  grant  he  is  designed 
Joannes  de  Gordon,  (now  first  altered  fiora 
Gordun)  without  any  addition  or  title  of 
honour.  The  estate  is  granted  to  him  and  his 
heirs  iv/iutsomever,  and  in  the  grant  it  is  men- 
tioned that  a  former  grant  by  Kiny  Robert 
I.  to  his  great-grandfather  Adam  de  Gor- 
dun, had  not  taken  effect,  because  the  Earl 

of  Atliole  had  returned  to  his  allegiance,  and 
recovered  his  estates  for  some  time,  but  was 
now  again  forfeited.  By  Elizabeth,  his  wife, 
daughter  of  Cruickslianks,  of  Aswanly,  he 
had  three  sons,  viz. 

I.  Adam,  who  fell  at  Homildon,  in  1403, 
leaving  an  only  daughter  and  heiress, 
Elizabeth,  who  in  virtue  of  the  char- 
ter of  Kiny  Robert  II.  to  heirs  what- 
somever,  succeeded  to  the  estate  of 
Strathbolgie,  and  to  the  other  estates 
of  Gordon  and  Hmitli/,  in  Berwick- 
shire, which  were  settled  in  the  same 
manner.  This  Elizabeth  m.  in  1408, 
Alexander,  (second  son  of  Sir  Wil- 
liam Seton)  who  assumed  the  sur- 
name of  Gordon.  From  this  marriage 
descended  the  Dukes  of  Gordon,  the 
Earls  and  Marquises  of  Huntly,  the 
Gordons  of  Cluny,  and  Major  Gene- 
ral Patrick  Gordon,  governor  of 
Pensylvania,  whose  daughter  and 
eventual  heiress,  Philadelphia,  m. 
Colonel  Abraham  Taylor,  and  was 
great  grandmother  of  the  present  Dr. 
Taylor,  of  Clifton.     (See  p.  8.)

The  second  son, 

John  Gordon,  of  Scurdargue  or  Essie, 
I2th  in  lineal  male  descent  from  Adam  de 
Gordun,  the  founder  of  the  family,  married 
Margaret,  daughter  of  Sir  Patrick  Maitland, 
of  Gight,  and  dying  about  the  year  1420, 
was  succeeded  by  his  eldest  son,* 

John  Gordon,  who  acquired  the  lands  of 
Auchlenchries,  in  Aberdeenshire.  He  m. 
first,  Elizabeth,  daughter  of  Abernethy, 
Lord  Salton,  and  secondly,  Henault,  daugh- 
ter of  Macleod,  of  Harris.  His  eldest  son, 
by  his  first  marriage, 

John  Gordon,  of  Auchlenchries,  suc- 
ceeded him,  who  acquired  the  estates  of 
Kinmundy,  in  Aberdeenshire,  and  the  lands 
of  Lungar  and  Hilton,  in  the  neighbouring 
county  of  Kincardine.  He  married  Marga- 
ret, daughter  of  Sir  Alexander  Forbes,  an- 
cestor of  Lord  Pitsligo,  and  was  slain  in 
1513,  at  the  battle  of  Flodden,  fighting  under 
the  standard  of  Alexander,  third  Earl  of 
Huntly,  who  commanded  the  victorious  right 
wing  of  the  Scottish  army.  He  was  suc- 
ceeded by  his  only  son, 

*  Sir  Patrick  Maitlnnd  left  two  daughters,  co- 
heiresses of  Ins  opulent  estates.  Alexander,  first 
Earl  of  Huntly,  obtained  a  scift  of  the  wardship  of 
these  ladies,  in  favour  of  his  son  George,  Lord  ■ 
Gordon,  who  in  1467,  purchased  from  his  wards 
their  father's  estates.  The  estate  of  Gight  was 
one  of  those  purchased,  and  in  this  manner  the 
Bog  of  Gight  (now  Gordon  Castle)  became  the 
property  of  the  ducal  branch  of  the  family  of  Gor- 



John  Gordon,  wlio  sold  the  estate  of 
Lungar,  purchased  tlie  lands  of  Pitlurg, 
and  exchanged  Hilton  for  Cravetliin,  or

Dowager  of  Scotland,  and  granddaughter  of 
King  Edward  III.  of  Knglaiul,  being  the 
daughter  of  his  sou  John,  Duke  of  Lancaster. 
He  married  secondly,  Margaret  Drummond, 
of  the  family  of  Perth,  and  d.  iu  1544.  His 
eldest  son, 

John  Gordon,  of  Pitlurg,  married  Janet, 
daughter  of  James  Ogilvie,  of  Culleu,  (an- 
cestor of  the  Karls  of  Findlater  and  Sea- 
field)  by  whom  he  ac(|uired  the  estate  of 
Hroadlands,  iu  Aberdeenshire.  He  fell  at 
Pinkie,  in  1347,  leaving  one  son,  only  five 
months  old. 

Sir  Johx   Gordon,  knight,    of  Pitlurg, 
who   frequently   represented  the  county   of 
Aberdeen,  in  tlie  .Scotlisli  Parliament,  and 
bore  an  eminent  |)art  in  tlie  alTairs  of  that 
period.     He  enjoyed  the  esteem  and  confi- 
dence of  Jamrs  Vf.  auil  many  letters  from 
tliat  Priiu:e  to  him  are  iu  tlie  possession  of 
his  descendants.       He  was  specially  invited 
by  the  King  to  attend  the  baptism  of  Prince 
Henry,  at  Holyrood,  on  wliicli  occasion  he 
received  the  honour  of  knighthood.     In  Oc- 
tober,   1394,   his  Majesty,  by  a  royal  letter 
and  mandate,  committed  to  his  custody  "tlie 
house,  place  and  forliilii-e  of  StratlihoUjie," 
and  empowered  him  to  receive  the  rents  and 
revenues  of  the    estate    for   the    behoof   of 
Henrietta,  Countess  of  Iluntly,  the  eldest 
daughter  of  Esau,  Lord  Aiibigny,  (the  King's 
first,  and  for  a  long  time  liis  most  intimate 
favourite)  who  was  created  Uuke  of  Lennox, 
in    I.JKI.     The  Earl   of  Huntly  at  that  time 
headed  the  catholic  faction,  was  persecuted 
by  tlie  Heformers,  but  protected  by  tli('  King, 
and  Sir  John,  who  profissed  tlie  protcstant 
religion,  and   enjojed  tlie  full  confidence  of 
Jamks  VI.  was  freipieritly  gmployed  as  a 
negociator    in   the   alfairs   of   the    Earls    ol 
lluiitly,  Angus  and  Erml,  (lliendistinguislird 
by   the  appi  liation    of   "  the  three    I'lipish 
l.ori/s.")    in  tliese  negociations,  it  is  evident 
from  llie  docunienls  in  the  possession  of  his 
desceiKhiiits,  that  Sir  Juliii  had  warmly  es- 
)ioused  tlie  cause  of  Huntly  ;  and  th(^  inllu- 
eiice  of  his  family,  and  the   high  character 
which  he  mainlaiiieil  witli  both  parties,  ena- 
blril    liiiii  to  interfere  successfully  iu  bihall 
of  tlie  I'^arl,  and  to  proti'Cthini  from  the  full 
fury  of  the  Keforniers,  while  his  son,  Hubert 
Gordon,  possessing  the  same  high  character, 
an<l  a  similar,  or  even  greater  degree  of  in- 
fluence  and   power,  was,  on   the  execution 
and  forfeiture  of  the  Marcpiis  of  Huntly,  in 
KK!),  of  the  griatist    servile  to    the    large 
laniilv  uhicli  that  iioldeinaii  left  beliind  liini. 

The  Marquis  of  Argyle,  by  various  means, 
obtained  possession  of  the  whole  estates  of 
Huntly,  and  the  Marquis  of  Huntly 's  chil- 
dren thus  becoming  dependent  on  the  favour 
of  their  uncle  Argyle,  constantly  applied  to 
Mr.  Gordon,  whose  utmost  influence  and 
address  were  employed  in  procuring  for 
them  a  temporary  subsistence,  and  in  settling 
the  family  differences,  which  had  almost 
produced  au  open  rupture  with  Argyle. 
There  are  many  letters  to  Mr.  Gordon  from 
Argyle's  nephews,  (the  sons  of  the  Marquis  of 
Huntly,)  full  of  comiilaintsagainsthim  ;  and 
there  are  some  from  Argyle,  which  appear 
to  justify  his  conduct  in  those  att'airs.  In  the 
saiueuniform  line  ofconductMr.  Gordon  con- 
tinued to  exert  himself  in  favour  of  the  family 
of  Huntly,  till  the  restoration  of  Charles  II. 
w  lien  the  estates  and  honours  were  restored 
to  George,  fourth  Marquis  of  Huntly,  created 
Duke  of  Gordon,  1st  November,  1C84.  Du- 
ring the  troubled  times  of  the  two  Charles's, 
Sir  John  Gordon  and  his  son  Robert,  were 
olthe  greatest  service  to  the  family  of  Huntly, 
and  the  numerous  letters  from  these  mo- 
narchs  and  from  the  principal  nobility  and 
persons  of  distinction  to  Sir  John  and  his 
sou,  distinctly  show  the  high  character  and 
influence  which  they  maintained  with  the 
jarring  factions  of  the  period,  and  which 
enabled  them  so  powerfully  to  aid  their 
friends.  Those  letters  to  Sir  John  are  of 
great  value  in  an  historical  point  of  view,  as 
they  throw  much  light  on  some  of  the  most 
obscure  parts  of  the  transactions  of  those 
times.  Sir  John  m.  Isabel,  daughter  of  Wil- 
liam, seventh  Lord  Forbes,  and  d.  16th 
September,  IGOO,  leaving  two  sons  and  a 
daughter.     The  elder  son, 

John  Gordon,  of  Pitlurg,  inherited  the 
esteem  of  James  VI.  He  m.  Nicolas,  daugh- 
ter of  Kinnaird,  of  Kinnaird,  but  dying 
s.  p.  in  161!>,  was  succei'ded  by  his  brother, 
Robert  Gordon,  of  Pitlurg,  commonly 
designed  of  Straloch.  This  gentleman,  a 
poet,  a  mathematician,  an  aiiti(piary,  and  a 
geographer,  was  born  Htli  September,  I.')80, 
and  acquired  the  rudiments  of  his  education 
iu  Marischal  College  and  University,  of 
which  he  was  the  first  graduate.  He  after- 
wards studied  at  Paris,  w  here  lu^  made  the 
acipiaintance  of  several  nuiarkable  men. 
A  few  years  after  his  return  to  Scotland,  he 
married  Catherine,  daughter  of  Alexander 
Irvine,  of  Ijiiiturk,  and  not  long  subse- 
(piently  inirchased  tile  estate  of  Straloch,  in 
Ahenleenshire.when'  he  continued  toreside. 
Ill  Kill,  he  was  honoured  by  a  letter  from 
('ll  \ui.l.s  I.  "earnestly  entreating"  him  to 
idinpletethe  publication  of  an  atlas  of  Scot- 
land, which  had  been  projected  by  Timothy 
I'unt.  To  this  work  Mr.  (ioriloii  zealously 
devoted  himself,  and  in  such  high  estima- 
tion were  his  labours  held,  that  by  twii  acts 
of  the  Scottish  ParliunienI,  hewas  exempted 



from  all  military  burdens,  while  the  general 
assembly  of  the  eliiirch  published  a  request 
to  the  clergy,  to  aflord  him  every  assistance 
in  their  power.  Thus  encouraged,  the  un- 
dertaking was  completfd  in  the  year  1648, 
and  soon  afterwards  published  by  tlie  Blaeus, 
of  Amsterdam,  under  the  title  of  "Tlieatrum 
Scotia>."  A  second  edition  was  published 
in  1655,  and  a  third  in  16G2.  Of  tliis  per- 
formance it  is  sulHcient  praise  to  state  that 
it  was  the  first  delineation  of  Scotland  made 
from  actual  survey  and  measurement,  and 
that  its  accuracy  is  remarkable  even  in  the 
present  day.  While  he  contributed  many 
maps,  entirely  of  his  own  construction,  he 
revised  and  materially  improved  all  the 
others,  adding  geographical  descriptions  of 
much  value,  and  prefixing  an  introduction, 
in  which  a  comprehensive  view  is  given  of 
the  constitution  and  antiquities  of  the  coun- 
try. These  dissertations  are  remarkable  as 
the  first  attempts  to  settle  the  ancient  history 
of  Scotland  on  the  basis  on  which  it  is  now 
universally  acknowledged  to  rest.  On  these 
topics  Mr.  Gordon  farther  explained  his 
views  in  several  essays,  hitherto  inedited, 
which  are  mentioned  with  much  approbation 
by  Bishop  Nicolson,  in  his  Scottish  Histo- 
rical Library.  Besides  the  "Theatrum  Seo- 
tife,"  Mr.  Gordon  wrote  several  works, 
which  still  remain  in  MS.  The  chief  of 
these  is  a  History  of  the  Family  of  Gordon 
from  the  earliest  period  to  the  year  1595, 
bearing  this  title,  "  Origo  et  Progressus 
Familiffi  illustrissinia;  Gordoniorum  in  Sco- 
tia," and  like  all  his  productions,  written  in 
Latin,  with  ease,  elegance  and  accuracy. 
He  wrote  also  a  preface  to  Archbishop  Spot- 
tiswoode's  History  of  the  Church  of  Scot- 
land, and  translated  into  Latin  the  contro- 
versy between  John  Knox  and  Wolfram, 
sub-prior  of  St.  Andrew's.  An  able  critical 
letter  on  the  Scottish  historians,  which  he 
addressed  to  the  antiquary  David  Buclianan, 
is  inserted  in  Leland's  Collectanea  ;  some  of 
his  poems  have  been  printed  in  Bishop 
Forbes'  Funerales  (Aberdeen,  1635)  and 
elsewhere  ;  and  part  of  his  correspondence 
with  LordCrimond  (father  of  the  celebrated 
Burnet,  Bishop  of  Salisbury,)  appears  in  a 
memoir  prefixed  to  "  Johannis  Forbesii,  a 
Corse,  opera,"  published  at  Amsterdam,  in 
1703.  By  his  contemporaries  of  all  parties, 
he  was  held  in  the  highest  respect,  and  was 
frequently  called  on  to  fill  the  honourable 
oflice  of  mediating  between  them.  He  d. 
18th  August,  1661,  and  was  interred  in  the 
family  burial  place  at  New  Machar,  on  the 
6th  of  September  following.  A  portrait  of 
him,  by  Jameson,  the  Scottish  Vandyke,  is 
preserved  in  the  public  hall  of  Marischal 
College  ;  an  engraving  from  this  pain  ting  was 
publislied  in  Smith's  Iconographia  Scotica, 
and  another  print  lately  appeared  in  Cham- 
bers' Lives  of  Illustrious  Scotsmen,  where 

there  is  a  memoir  of  Mr.  Gordon.*     He

I.  Robert,  his  heir. 

II.  John,  of  Fechill. 

III.  William,  who  died  at  Paris,  in  1648, 
without  issue.  He  distinguished  him-

Proclamation  of  the  Long  Parliament, 
and  the  Declaration  against  the  King.

a  respectable  family.  He  assisted 
his  father  in  his  geographical  labours, 
and  himself  acquired  eminence  in  that 
departraeutof  science.  He  published 
a  highly  curious  map  of  the  city  of 
Edinburgh,  with  views  of  some  of  the 
chief  buildings.  He  constructed  also 
a  plan  of  the  cities  of  Old  and  New 
Aberdeen,  which  was  engraved  in 
Holland,  at  the  expense  of  the  corpo- 
ration, who  presented  Mr.  Gordon 
with  a  silk  hat,  and  with  a  silver  cup, 
weighing  twenty  ounces,  besides  a 
donation  to  his  lady.  He  wrote  a 
"  History  of  the  Transactions  in  Scot- 
land from  1637  to  1640,"  and  "A 
Description  of  bothe  towns  of  Aber- 
deene,"  to  accompany  his  plan.  Both 
these  treatises  still  exist  in  manu- 
script, together  with  a  Common  Place 
Book  of  Practical  Divinity,  which  he 
composed  in  1646.

of  the  aiarischal  College  was  painted  by  .lameson, 
or  if  it  was,  be  must  have  painted  two,  for  there  is 
no  doubt  that  the  portrait  in  tlie  possession  of  the 
present  Pitlurg  is  the  work  of  Jameson  ;  and  it  is 
beyond  <|uestion  a  superior  portrait  to  the  one  in

Mr.  Gordon  Cuming  d.  in  1708,  and  was  s. 
by  his  son, 

John  Goudon  Cuming,  of  Pitlurg  and 
Birnes,  born  in  17()1,  who  inheriting  in 
18l;3  the  estates  of  his  relative,  Skene,  of 
Dyce,  (eldest  collateral  branch  of  Skene,  of 
.Skene)  assumed  the  name  of  Skene,  in  con- 
formity with  a  deed  of  eiitJiil.  He  entered 
the  army  in  1779,  and  joined  the  36th  regi- 
ment, then  under  orders  for  America,  but 
their  destination  was  afterwards  changed,  in 
consequence  of  several  regiments  having 
objected  to  embark  for  Gibraltar,  as  being 
contrary  to  enlisting  engagements.  The  36th 
regiment  vf)lunteered  for  that  service,  and 
embarked  at  Cork,  but  they  were  dispersed 
in  a  storm,  and  the  transports  took  shelter 
in  various  ports  in  Kngland.  Peace  very 
soon  after  took  jilace,  and  he  received  a 
company  in  the  Kith  foot.  On  tin;  break- 
ing out  of  the  late  war  he  became  Major  of 
tlie  Duke  of  Gonlon's  feiicible  regiment, 
(the  North  Fencibles,  or  Gordon  High- 
landers,) and  served  in  Scotland  and  on  the 
coast  of  Sussex,  at  the  period  of  General 
Dumorier's  threatened  invasion.  The  fen- 
cible  force  having  been  found  to  be  eilicient, 
several  more  regiments  were  raised  soon 
after,  and  he  having  obtained  the  rank  of 
lieutenant-colonel  in  the  army,  ofl'ered  his 
services  and  commenced  recruiting  for  the 
Loyal  Iinernesshire  Feneible  Regiments, 
limited  to  serve  in  Great  Britainand  Ireland. 
He  served  willi  his  regiment  during  the  re- 
bellion in  Ireland,  with  much  cre<lit,  in  try- 
ing and  dillieult  situations,  and  indui-ed  his 
regiment  to  oiler  their  service  under  him,  to 
join  Sir  Ralph  .\bercrond)ie  in  Egyjit,  and 
to  extend  it  to  any  part  of  Europe  that  his 
Majesty  required.  For  this  spirited  oiler 
the  regiment  received  liis  Majesty's  most 
gracious  thanks,  and  his  Royal  Highness 
the  commander-in-chief  was  pleased  to  order, 
as  a  mark  of  approbation,  that  the  corps 
should  beconu'  a  royal  regiment,  and  l)e 
designateil  the  Hnke  of  York's  Royal  High- 
landers. On  the  ])<'ace  of  .Vniiens,  in  1803, 
till'  feneible  r<giuients  Acre  disbanded,  and 
at  the  ti'rmination  of  that  short  truci',  he  was 
appoiiiti'd  inspecting  lield  ollicer  of  yeo- 
manry aiul  \  olunteers,  and  afterwards  a  bri- 
gadier-genei'ai  in  the  northern  dislriets  of 
.Scotland,  under  the  command  of  Major- 
tleni'ral  the  Manpiis  of  Huntly  (the  late 
Duke  of(iordoii);  thence,  in  l8l(l.  he  was 
placed  as  n  major-general  on  the  stalF 
of  .Sicily  ;  then  he  was  remove  d  to  a  com- 
maiul  at  Belfast,  in  Ireland,  where  he  re- 
\  inained  two  years,  and  from  that  he  pro- 
1  ceeded  to  Jainuic.i,  where  he  served  as  second 




in  command  to  Lieutenant-g;eneral Morrison, 
the  lieutenant-governor  of  that  colony.  He 
again  returned  to  Britain,  and  was  immedi- 
atel)'  placed  in  command  of  tlie  Severn  dis- 
trict, in  England.  On  the  4tli  June,  1813, 
he  was  raised  to  the  rank  of  lieutenant- 
general,  and  placed  on  the  Irish  staff  as  a 
lieutenant-general  in  command  of  the  south- 
east district  of  tliat  kingdom.  This  com- 
mand he  was  obliged  to  relinquish  in  1814, 
in  consequence  of  declining  health,  and  on 
that  occasion  he  had  the  honour  and  gratifi- 
cation of  receiving  a  very  kind  and  conso- 
latory letter  fromH.  R.  H.  tlie  Duke  of 
York,  acknowledging  and  thanking  him  for 
Lis  long  and  zealous  service.  He  m.  Lucy, 
third  daughter  of  Sir  Hugh  Crawford,  hart, 
of  Jordan  hill,  and  had  issue, 

I.  William,  his  heir. 

II.  Thomas,  who  married  Harriet,  third 
daugliter  of  Lieutenant-general  Sir 
William  Hutchinson. 

III.  James,  who  m.  Jane-Adelaide,  se- 
cond daughter  of  Sir  Thomas  Mac- 
kenny,  bart.  of  Dublin. 

I.  Crawford,  m.  to  William  Forlong, 
esq.  of  Errins.

Pitlurg  died  in  1828,  and  was  «.  by  his 
eldest  son,  the  present  William  Gordon- 
Cuming-Skene,  esq.  of  Pitlurg  and  Dyce. 

From  the  first  settlement  of  Adam  de 
Gordun  in  Scotland,  in  the  year  1057  to  the 
present  day,  a  period  of  779  years  has 
elapsed,  during  which  time  there  have  been 
tvventv-six  descents  in  the  lineal  male  line 
of  Pitlurg.  The  Viscounts  of  Kenmure, 
however,  also  connect  a  lineal  uninterrupted 

male  descent  from  Adam  de  Gordun,  Wil- 
liam de  Gordun.  the  ancestor  of  this  family, 
being  the  second  son  of  Adam  de  Gordun, 
the  eighth  in  descent  from  the  first  settler  in 
Scotland.  But  the  family  of  Pitlurg  came 
off  in  the  eleventh  generation  ;  for  on  the 
succession  of  Elizabeth,  the  thirteenth  lineal 
descendant  of  Adam  de  Gordun,  her  uncle, 
John,  of  Scurdargue,  the  ancestor  of  the 
family  of  Pitlurg,  carried  on  the  male  line 
of  the  family,  and  his  descendant,  the  pre- 
sent Pitlurg,  is  consequently,  the  descents 
being  clear  and  uninterrupted,  the  chief 
lineal  male  representative  of  the  family  of 
Gordon.  From  the  family  of  Pitlurg  up- 
wards of  sixty  families  have  sprung,  who  all 
settled  in  the  nortli. 

From  various  causes  arising  from  the 
civil  wars,  Sjc.  it  would  seem  that  the  family 
of  Pitlurg  lost  much  of  their  pow  er  after  the 
year  1661,  and  it  does  not  appear  that  they 
began  to  regain  their  influence  before  the 
year  1731.  Since  that  period,  however,  tlie 
estates  hare  been  greatly  increased,  and  the 
influence  of  the  family  has  progressed  with 
its  wealth.  The  estates  of  Birnes  and  Leask, 
and  those  left  by  Mr.  Skene,  of  Dyce,  have 
restored  the  family  to  their  former  rank,  aud 
given  its  present  representative  an  equal 
political  and  personal  influence  with  that 
exercised  by  his  ancestor,  Sir  John  Gordon, 
in  the  I6th  century.

Captain  Bainbrigge  succeeded  to  the  representation  of  the  family  on  the  death  of  his 
brother  in  1818. 




This  family,  of  great  antiquity  in  the  iiortli 
of  England,  came  to  Lockinston  about  tlic 
close  of  tlie  rei^n  of  IIi'MiY  VII.  "  In  tiie 
year  15H,3,  William  Flower,  Norroy,  granted 
to  William  Haynl>rigge,  of  Loekington  ("de- 
scended from  the  ancient  family  of  the  I5ain- 
brigges,  In  the  north)  a  crest  to  his  ancient 
arms,  which  were  tlien  confirmed."  See 
MS.  in  Ashmole,  vol.  844,  f.  2.37.  238. 

It  would  appear  from  tradition   that  the 
name   was  originally  Bayn,  a  Saxon   word  ] 
signifying  ready,  and  that  the  word  Urigge  ! 
was  added  in  conse(|uence  of  one  of  the  fa- 
mily having  with  his  sons  and  followers  sue-  [ 
cessfully  defended  a  bridge  against  foreign  i 
invaders  ;  and  we  now  find  a  village  called  I 
Hainbri<lge   in   the  North   Hiding  of  York- 
shire,   a    pass    in    the    mountains    between 
Y'orkshire    and    Westmorland,    which    was 
formerly  a  military  post  of  defence,  a  Homan 
station,  and  a  place  ofgreat  anticpiity.    There 
are    also   oilier  traces  of  the    family  in   the 
north  of  Knglainl,  as  Uainbrigg  Holm,  in  the 
north   division   ot    Kasington   Ward,  in    the 
county  of  Durham,  and  at  Appleby,  in  West- 
morlainl.     The  records  of  territorial  jiosses- 
sions   in  Doomsday  Hook, did  not  extend  to 
this  part  of  Kngland,  owing  to  the  hostility 
of  the  iialives  to  the  Normans  ;  consciiuently 
the  name  is  not  found  in  that  work,  and  not 
being  included  among  tlie  Norman  followers, 
it   is  presunu'd  that  they  did  not  come  into 
ICngland  at  the  (;on(piest. 

These  facts,  together  w  ith  that  of  the  prin- 
cipal bi'aring  in  thi'  arms  being  the  haltle- 
axe,a  weapon  of  the  highest  antiquity,  being 
the  ancient  Celt,  showing  Saxon  or  rather 
Danish  connection,  it  is  to  he  inferr<d  that 
the  tamily  were  established  in  England  prior 
to  the  Norman  invasion. 

Ciuillim,  a  high  authority  on  heraldry, 
selects  the  example  of  the  arms  of  this  fa-

dnvs  that  he  vvius  poisoned  by  a  priest  in  revenf;e 
fur  a  lilciw  Kivenby  the  cardinal.  .Sir  Henry  Ellis, 
however,  in  his  Letters  and  State  Papers,  shows 
that  I)b  Cii((lis,  an  Italian,  bishop  of  Worcester, 
then  resident  at  Home,  as  the  kinjj's  orator,  bribed 
Kinalilo  de  Modena,  n  priest  living  in  Cardinal 
Havnbriiie's  establislnnent,  and  in  bis  confidence, 
to  murder  him,  which  bf  ihJ  bv  pcison,  and  re-

fesHHl  the  whole,  but  fniiliu);  that  Pope  l.eo  .\. 
would  not  spare  Ids  life,  he  stabbed  himself  and

PEDLEIl,  PHILIP-WARREN,  esq.  of  Hoo  Mavey,  in  the  county  of  Devon,  a  lieu- 
tenant-colonel in  the  aimy  of  India. 

This  gentleman  was  for  several  years  actively  engaged 
in  the  service  of  the  India  Company,  and  for  a  great 
portion  of  the  time  held  a  distinguished  command  in  the 
Indian  army.  His  military  career  commenced  in  1802, 
and  he  was  soon  afterwards  placed  in  the  division  com- 
manded by  Sir  Arthur  Wellesley.  In  1807  he  iield  the 
rank  of  brigade-major,  and  was  under  Colonel  East  at  the 
siege  of  Chyah,  where  he  obtained  the  thanks  of  his  com- 
manding" officer,  by  gallantly  heading  a  storming  party. 
Subsequently,  in  1815,  the  Marquess  of  Hastings,  then 
governor-general  of  India,  having  adopted  the  project  of 
Captain  George  Sydenham,  political  agent  at  Berar,  to 
organize  a  corps  of  four  thousand  auxiliary  horse  under  the 
command  of  British  officers.  Captain  Pedler  was  selected  as 
second  to  Captain  Evan  Davies  for  this  important  service, 
Rnd  he  led,  under  the  command  of  that  officer,  600  of  those  reformed  cavalry  against 
2000  insurgents,  who  were  devastating  the  territories  of  the  Company  and  their  allies. 
Captains  Davies  and  Pedler  were  both  wounded,*  and  the  complete  success  of  the  first 
affair  in  which  the  reformed  cavalry  was  engaged,  called  forth  the  expression  of  the 
governor-general's  approbation,  in  a  dispatch  to  the  resident  at  Hyderabad :  from 
which  the  following  passage  is  extracted.  "  The  governor-general  in  council  has  re- 
marked with  particular  satisfaction  the  excellent  conduct  of  the  reformed  horse  on  the 
first  occasion  of  their  being  led  into  action  ;  the  gallant  manner  in  which  they  advanced 
against  a  superior  force  would  have  been  creditable  to  any  troops,  and  affords  the 
strongest  proof  of  the  zeal  and  attention  which  has  been  exerted  in  perfecting  this 
corps.  The  sjiirit  with  which  Captains  Davies  and  Pedler,  Lieutenant  Rind,  and  the 
native  officers  displayed  in  leading  the  men  into  action,  affording  them  the  most  ani- 
mating example,  is  considered  deserving  the  highest  praise." 

Soon  after  this  affair  Captain  Pedler  reassumed  the  command  of  his  division,  and 
moved  with  it  to  the  relief  of  Nagpore,  was  engaged  at  the  siege  of  that  place,  and  in 
the  action  of  the  Kith  December,  1817,  where  he  had  a  horse  shot  under  him  and  was 
slightly  wounded  in  the  foot,  was  thanked  on  the  field  by  Brigade-General  Doveton, 
and  was  mentioned  in  the  report  of  the  general  to  the  adjutant-general.  Captain 
Pedler  was  subsequently  placed  in  command  of  his  portion  of  the  corps  by  the 
governor-general,  in  the  following  flatteriug  terms  connnunicated  by  Mr.  Secretary 
Adams  to  the  British  resident  at  Nagpore.  "The  governor-general  has  learned  from 
your  private  letters  that  you  have  invited  Captain  Pedler  to  raise  and  form  the  Nagpore 

•  TliB  following  humane  nnd  generous  net  of  one  of  the  enemy's  soldiers  in  this  conflict  is  de- 
servinj;  of  record.  Caj>miii  I'edler,  nho  had  heen  severely  wounded  in  ihe  sword  iirm,  wiis  relurnin^', 
after  llie  retreat  iinil  total  rout  of  the  enemy,  to  where  the  buttle  beiran,  when  he  fainted  from  loss  of 
hlood  and  fell  from  his  horse.  A  Itujhpoot  soldier  of  fortune,  one  of  the  hostile  nuiks,  observinj;  an 
officer  fall,  rame  at  once  to  his  assistance,  staunched  the  bleedinj;  wound  bv  tearing  otV  the  end  of  his 
turhan  anil  using  it  as  a  turnicate,  removeil  the  sull'erer  to  the  shade  of  a  neighbouriie^  tree,  where, 
after  some  time,  he  restored  life  and  animation.  Captain  I'eilh-r,  on  recovering,  found  himself  sup- 
ported hy  Ilia  generous  foe,  whom  he  easily  persuaded  to  follow  his  fortunes  ;  and  afterwards  finding 
Ilim  as  faithful  as  he  was  humane  nnd  brave,  conferred  upon  him  n  commission  in  the  Nagpore  Auxiliary 
Cavalry.  It  is  further  worthy  of  remark,  that  this  soldier  was  rec<ignised  as  a  di>serter  at  lionibuy, 
having  formerly  served  for  n  short  period  in  the  company's  army  ;  but  on  a  statement  of  his  disinterested 
anil  liiimnne  ccmdiict  being  made,  the  coniiiianih'r-in-chief,  Sir  ]\liles  Nightingale,  accorded  him  his  free  Ilrwas  beside  hiind-i.iniely  rewarded  hy  many  dislinguished  individuals  at  liolnhav.  and  the 
Hon.  iMciiint  Stuart  I'.lphinsloiie,  the  then  governor,  presented  him,  from  his  private  purse,  with '.'00 
rii|iees  as  a  mark  of  his  approbation.  It  was  a  proud  and  just  estimation  of  the  chanicter  of  the  liritish 
officers  he  hnd  formed,  whilst  serving  in  the  company's  aniiy,  whicli,  he  often  afterwanU  acknowledged, 
nctuatrd  him  in  thia  disinterested  act  of  humanity. 


Horse,  a  selection  which  his  lordship  cannot  but  approve.  His  lordship  purposes  to 
place  Captain  Pedler  in  command  of  that  portion  of  his  Highness  the  Rajah's  troops, 
and  his  lordsliip  expects  the  service  will  derive  great  advantage  from  that  otficer's 
judgment  and  familiarity  with  the  prejudices  of  this  class  of  troops  as  well  as  from  his 
tried  gallantry  in  the  field." 

Captain  Pedler  next  joined  Brigade-General  Adams's  division,  was  present  at  the 
attack  and  defeat  of  the  Persha,  and  at  the  siege  and  capture  of  Chandah,  where  he 
was  again  thanked  for  his  services.  He  was  afterwards  invited  by  the  resident  at 
Nagpore  to  reform  and  organize  his  Highness  the  Rajah's  cavalry,  and  was  confirmed 
in  tiie  command  of  the  corps  by  the  governor-general  of  India.  On  his  removal, 
Major  Davies  thus  speaks  of  his  services,  in  an  order  announcing  the  fact  of  his  pro- 
motion, dated  "  Camp,  Ahmednugger,  18th  May,  1818.  On  this  occasion  the  com- 
manding officer  feels  it  due  to  the  merits  of  Captain  Pedler  to  record  the  high  sense 
he  entertains  of  his  eminent  public  services  since  he  joined  the  Reformed  Horse,  dis- 
played as  they  have  been  on  so  many  occasions  of  arduous  contests,  and  distinguished 
by  the  most  zealous  devotion  to  a  cause  which  has  required  so  much  of  that  personal 
intrepidity  for  which  Captain  Pedler  has  ever  been  conspicuous. 

"  Captain  Pedler  will  be  happy  to  learn  that  his  loss  is  deeply  felt  by  the  command- 
ing officer  and  the  corps,  and  that  his  admirable  and  zealous  co-operation  in  effecting 
the  purposes  for  which  the  Nizams  cavalry  were  reformed,  have  left  him  incapable  of 
estimating  by  any  common  standard  the  value  of  such  services ;  and  in  taking  leave 
of  a  subje'ct  so  interesting  to  his  feelings,  he  cannot  but  congratulate  the  service  on  the 
distinguished  place  which  Captain  Pedler  has  acquired  through  his  own  exertions,  and 
he  assures  Captain  Pedler,  that  however  their  mutual  interests  may  be  separated,  he 
cannot  avoid  associating  them  with  his  own  and  that  of  the  troops  he  has  the  honor  to 

command."  ,  i,,,  ■      t>    n  •     i 

After  nearly  ten  years'  active  employment  in  this  command  Major  Pedler  retired 
from  the  service,  and  his  resignation  is  thus  recorded  : 

"  Nagpore,  6th  Dec.  1 826. 
"  Orders  by  the  British  Resident. 

"  In  announcing  to  the  Nagpore  Auxiliary  Force  Major  Pedler's  resignation  of  the 
command  of  the  horse  in  the" service  of  his  Highness  the  Rajah,  the  resident  feels  it 
due  to  record  in  the  most  public  manner  the  high  sense  which  he  entertains  of  that 
officer's  ser\'ices  throughout  the  period  of  more  than  ten  years  that  has  elapsed  since 
he  was  selected  to  fill  that  important  station. 

"  The  duties  devolving  on  Major  Pedler  at  the  outset  of  his  service  were  of  an 
arduous  and  delicate  nature  ;  to  reform  a  body  of  men  such  as  the  Rajah's  corps  of 
horse  then  were,  and  to  bring  them  into  such  a  state  of  discipline  and  efficiency  as 
might  render  them  useful,  or  even  safe,  as  auxiliaries,  was  a  task  of  no  common  or 
ordinary  difficulty;  that  it  has  been  accomplished  with  eminent  success  is  mainly 
attributable  to  the  judgment,  temper,  and  address  displayed  by  Major  Pedler  in  the 
execution  of  all  arrangements  formed  under  his  superintendence. 

"  The  constant  good  feeling  evinced,  with  that  zeal  and  fidelity  at  all  times  mani- 
fested by  the  corps,  furnishes  a  strong  proof  of  the  merit  of  the  system  introduced  into 
that  body  by  Major  Pedler,  and  the  resident  has  only  to  wish  that  the  same  qualities 
may  continue,  to  perpetuate  the  memory  of  the  officer  under  whom  they  have  been  so 
lono-  fostered.  Major  Pedler  will  no  doubt  consider  this  statement  as  his  best  praise 
of  the  result  of  his  exertions  in  the  Rajah's  service,  yet  the  resident  must  add  his 
warmest  thanks  and  applause  as  a  parting  tribute  due  from  himself  and  the  government 
which  has  so  largely  benefitted,  and  will  still  benefit,  by  those  exertions.

delicious  seat  situate  ni'ar  the  river  Wye, 
and  within  two  myles  of  Hereford,  abound- 
ing with  store  of  excellent  fruit  and  fertyle 
arable  land,  having  also  a  park  within  less 
than  half  a  myle  of  the  house,  where  there 
is  a  neat  lodge  upon  a  liill  which  overlooks 
the  whole  <(iuntry  adjacent.  It  was  held  so 
delightful  a  place,  that  the  proverb  was  cur- 
rent, as  anciently  of  Corinth, 

Non  datur  cuivis  adire  Hollieras. 
Every  one  may  not  live  at  llolheras. 

The  house*  is  partly  of  old  tymber  work, 
but  an  end  of  it  was  new  built  of  stone  in 
tlie  1,-ist  age  by  .Sir  Roger,  where  there  is  a 
fair  parlour  ful  of  coats  of  arms  according  to 
th<!  fashion  of  that  age,  and  over  that  a  noble 
dyiiing  room  wainscoted  with  walnut  tree, 
and  on  the  mantle  tree  of  the  chimney  2i>

This  gentleman,  who  is  lieutenant-colonel  of  the  Monaghan  militia  and  a  justice  of  the 
peace,  succeeded  his  father,  the  Rev.  Dr.  Henry  Leslie,  in  February,  1803. 


The  Leslies  descend  from  the  noble  fa- 
mily of  Rothes,  and  are  allied  by  blood  to 
many  of  the  nobility  of  Scotland.  Their 
first  settlement  in  Ireland  took  place  in  the 
reigu  of  James  I.  and  difl'erent  members 
of  the  family  now  possess  considerable  es- 
tates in  the  counties  of  Monaghan,  Antrim, 
Down,  Douegal,  and  Meath.  The  cliief 
branches  still  existing  are  those  of  Leslie  of 
Glasslough,  represented  by  Charles  Powell 
Leslie,  esq. ;  of  Ballybay,  by  Charles  Albert 
Leslie,  esq. ;  and  of  Leslie  House,  by  James 
Leslie,  esq.  There  are  also,  in  the  south  of 
Ireland,  families  of  the  name,   respecting 

whom  it  is  regretted  that  no  recent  infor- 
mation has  been  obtained.  From  a  docu- 
ment dated  in  1788,  it  appears  there  resided 
in  the  county  of  Kerry,  Sir  Edward  Leslie, 
hart,  who  was  son  of  the  then  late  Bishop  of 
Limerick,  and  descended  from  Dr.  John 
Leslie,  of  Urney,  who  obtained  from  Wil- 
liam III.  the  grant  of  Tarbert,  part  of  Lord 
Clare's  forfeitures.  Dr.  John  Leslie  was 
son  of  George  Leslie,  who  came  from  Scot- 
land with  liis  relative,  John,  Bishop  of 
Raphoe,  and  married  tliat  prelate's  wife's 
sister,  Catherine,  fourth  daughter  of  Alex- 
ander Conyngham,  Dean  of  Raphoe. 

The  house  of  Leslie,  of  Hungarian  origin, 
ranks,  in  point  of  antiijuity,  with  the  most 
ancient  in  the  kingdom,  and  it  lias  been  the 
rare  fortunes  of  the  family  to  be  illustrated 
by  an  historical  narrative*"  showing  the 
lineal  descent  of  each  generation  from  tlie 
year  1067,  when  its  patriarch,  Bartholomew, 
passed  into  Scotland  with  Queen  AI  a  ruar  et. 

*  This  very  curious  book,  in  the  possession 
of  one  of  the  family,  in  Ireland,  is  in  Latin.  A 
oene;iloj;-ical  tree,  as  frontispiece,  represents  the 
founder  of  the  family  stretched  upon  the  ground 
as  the  root,  his  son  as  the  stem,  from  which 
shoot  out  branches  and  leaves,  representing-  the 
difterent  descendants  of  the  family,  with  their 
connections,  down  to  the  time  at  which  the  bock 
was  printed. 



in  whose  liouseliold  lie  held  the  hi»li  office 
of  chaiiibeiliiin.  Many  families  of  Leslie 
are  now  resident  in  France,  Hungary,  Rus- 
sia, &c.  and  several  places  in  those  countries 
bear  names  derived  from  this  ancient  cogno- 
men, as  Leslinia,  Lessilia,  fkc.  The  sur- 
name has  been  dillerently  spelt,  Lessley, 
Lesley,  Lesly,  but  most  generally  Leslie. 
Bakthoi.omkw,  the  founder  of  the  family  in 
Great  Britain,  stood  high  in  the  favour  of 
Malcolm  IIL  of  Scotland,  by  uliom  honours 
and  possessions  were  conferred  npun  him 
with  no  sparing  hand,  in  reward  (or  liis  great 
services.  On  one  occasion,  after  a  gaiiant 
defence  of  the  citadel  of  Kdinburgli,  the 
King  promised  him  that  wherever  lie  should 
journey  from  Dumferinline  towards  the 
north,  in  one  day,  upon  the  same  horse,  he 
would  grant  bini  the  surrounding  country  to 
the  extent  of  a  mile.  When,  on  his  return 
from  the  performance  of  his  task,  the  King 
inquired  where  he  had  left  his  horse,  he 
answered  "between  the  liss  Ley*  and  the 
niair,"  the  King,  remarking  that  the  place 
agreed  with  bis  name,  replied,  "  Lord  Less- 
ley  shalt  thou  be,  and  thy  heirs  after  thee," 
and  conlirimil  tlie  promised  grant.  JSartho- 
loinew  died  al  an  advanced  age,  in  II-20, 
leaving  a  son  iMalcoIni,  who  maintained  the 
high  character  of  his  father,  and  whose 
descendants  bore  conspicuous  parts  in  many 
of  the  occurrences  of  the  eventful  times  in 
which  tliey  lived.  The  earldom  of  Hotlies 
was  conferred,  in  14;)7,  on  George  Leslie,

Norfolk,  succeeded  ids  father,  the  late  Colonel  Richard  L'loyd,  of  Bawdeswell  Hail,  in 
that  county,  on  liis  death  in  the  year  1811,  and  has  been  e.xempted  from  serving  as 
high  sheriff  for  the  county  of  Roscommon. 


The  family  of  L'loyd  of  Croghan  and 
Bawdeswell  claims  ancient  descent  from  the 
independent  Princes  of  Wales.  Connected 
with  the  house  of  Llewllyn,  aiul,  collater- 
ally, with  that  of  Tudor,  like  other  ancient 
families  of  that  wild  and  Ion;;  uncon<iuered 
principality,  it  s<;ems  lost  in  remote  anti- 
quity. The  first  ancestor  of  whom  we  liave 
distinct  record  is 

Hrdd  or  Tiiinn  Moi.wyvoo,  who  n'sided 
at  Yr  Heullys,  in  the  lordship  and  pari>h  of 
Tallyhaern.  He  was  senescbal  and  iiearly 
akin  to  Prince  David  ap  Owen,  and  was 
seized  in  chiif  of  the  lordship  abov<'  named, 
with  those  of  Llaiilair,  Dull'ryM,  IClwi;,  and 
Nantraled,  which  his  desciiidaiits  lonj;  en- 
joyed, and  part  of  which  are  by  some  of

mentation.* Of  the  same  blood  came  Rhys 
ap-Jenan-ap-Llewellyn  ap  Lloyd,  esquire 
to  the  body  of  Edward  IV.  (as  the  book  of 
Evan  Lloyd  JelVrv  hath  it)  who  with  his 
cousin  Pavyd  ap  Jenlcyn,  both  potent  chief- 
tains, acted  a  turbulent  part  in  the  Lancas- 
trian wars.  Omitting  the  long  unbroken 
descent  of  the  Deubigshire  Lloyds,  of  Ha- 
vodunnos,  during  those  unsettled  times,  we 
pass  to  their  descendant. 

Si  11  Robert  L'LOYD,  of  Wrexham,  in  Den-  , 
bigshire,  "  a  right  valorous  and  thrysty  cap- 
tain," who  wedded,  towards  the  close  of  the 
sixteenth  century,  Ann  Moustine  or  Mostyn, 
a  daughter  of  thiit  ancient  house,  now  enno- 
bled ill  the  person  of  the  present  Lord  Mos- 
tyn. Sir  Robert  had  issue,  cum  aliis, 
'  Thomas  L'LOYD,esq.  who  wedded  Honor, 
daughter  of  Robert  Price,  esq.  but  the  lady 
having  married  against  the  consent  of  her 
friends,  Mr.  Lloyd  was  induced  to  remove 
into  the  province  of  Ulster,  in  Ireland,  under 
the  auspices  of  his  kinsman,  the  celebrated 
Sir  Ralph  Bingley,  to  whom  the  Crown,  in 
1603,  granted  the  manors  of  Strangford  and 
Ardglass,  with  other  lands  in  Downshire. 
On  Sir  Ralph's  death,  Mr.  Lloyd  removed 
to  the  seat  of  his  cousin.  Sir  Maurrice  Gryf- 
fyth,  at  Carrick  Drumrushe,  in  the  county 
of  Leitrim,  and  there  acquiring  an  estate  of 
twelve  hundred  acres,  he  settled,  not  choos- 
ing to  return  into  Wales,  as  Mrs.  L'loyd's 
friends  continued  irreconcilable.  By  her 
he  left  five  sons  and  three  daughters,  viz. 

I.  Richard,  ?  both  officers  of  distinction, 

II.  John,  5  who  perished  in  the  field 
during  the  civil  wars  of  1641,  in  Ire-

fyth  Llwyd,  married  Madoc  Gloddaeth,  and 
brought  to  him  the  estate  of  Tregarnedd,  in  the 
Isle  of  Anglesea,  as  her  portion,  in  whose  house 
it  remained  until  the  families  Gloddaeth  and  Mos- 
tyn were  united,  and  in  the  joint  blood  (now  en- 
nobled as  above,  in  the  person  of  Lord  Mostyn) 
it  continued  until  the  late  Sir  Thomas  Blostvn 
aliened  it  to  the  late  Owen  Williams,  esii-  of  An- 

of  the  baronets  of  that  name  in  Ire- 
land, and  had  issue ;  and  thirdly.

Gore,  bart.  ancestor  of  the  Gores, 
Earls  of  Arran  and  Rosse,  &c. 

Mr.  Lloyd  was  succeeded  at  his  death  by  his 
third,  though  eldest  surviving  son, 

Owen  Lloyd,  esq.  a  captain  in  the  army. 
He  was  the  first  possessor  of  the  Roscom-

thousand  acres,  and  wedded  Elizabeth  Fitz- 
gerald, granddaughter  of  Sir  Luke  Fitzge-

This  family,  which  has  been  settled  fur 
nc^arly  two  <:enturles  in  the  county  of  Pein- 
briike,  derives  its  name  from  its  ancient 
iiiheritaiiee,*  Ilolcombe  or  Holtcombe,  in 
the  honor  of  Glocester,  in  the  county  of 
llevoii,  where,  and  at  Hole,  in  the  same 
county,  they,  according  to  Sir  William  Pole, 
resided  many  descents.

Walter  de  Holcombe  was  Lord  of  Hoi- 
combe  in  l.'iol.  Shortly  after  this  period 
the  family  (dianged  their  residence  to  Hole, 
and  anioiig  the  manuscripts  in  the  possession 
of  Sir  Thomas  Phillipps,  bart.  there  is  a 
pedigree  of  seven  generations  given  of  them, 
beginning  with  John  Holcombe,  who  mar- 
ried Isabel  Itowne,  the  daughter  and  eo- 
hiiicss  of  Hugh  Dowiie,  es(|.  of  Dowiie 
Ralph.  By  this  marriage  the  Hobomhes 
became  possessed  of  considerable  estates, 
part  of  the  ancient  inhuritance  of  Dowiie 



Ralph,  as  well  as  that  of  the  older  and* 
nobler  house  of  de  la  Rruer,  Sir  Ralph 
Dowiie,  the  great  grandfather  of  Isabel 
Downe,  having  married  Isabel  de  la  Bruer, 
the  daughter  and  co-heiress  of  Sir  William 
de  la  Bruer,  the  son  of  the  celebrated  Sir 
Geoffrey  de  la  Bruer,  who  was  the  great 
grandson  of  Reginald,  Earl  of  Cornwall,  the 
natural  son  of  King  Henry  I.  These  es- 
tates remained  in  the  family  till  about  1600, 
when  Hole,  &c.  was  sold  (by  Gilbert  Hol- 
combe,  the  last  of  the  family  who  resided  in 
Devonshire)  to  Ellis  Bartlett,  and  Downe 
Ralph  and  Tinge  Bruer  to  Mr.  Mallock.  The 
marriage  of  Christopher  Holcombe,  the  bro- 
ther of  Gilbert  Holcombe,  is  mentioned  in 
the  visitation  of  1620,  and  in  1G60  we  find 
his  son  William  settled  in  Pembrokeshire, 
and  in  1694,  he  was  appointed  mayor  of  the 
borough  of  Pembroke. 

John  Holcombe, whomarried  Miss  Downe, 
was  the  grandfather  of  Roger  Holcombe, 
who  was  living  in  the  19th  of  Edward  IV. 
He  was  succeeded  by  his  son  Charles,  who 
had  issue  Ellis,  who  married  Elizabeth,  the 
daughter  of  Thomas  Sydenham,  of  Lynford 
Eagle,  in  the  county  of  Dorset,  and  by  her 
had  issue,  Thomas,  who  had  issue,  Gilbert, 
Christopher,  and  Josias.  Christopher,  from 
whom  this  family  derive  their  origin,  mar- 
ried an  Irish  lady,  and  by  her  had  issue, 

»  Lord  William  Bruer  was  one  of  the  most 
powerful  noblemen  of  his  day,  and  enjoyed  the  sin- 
gular pood  fortune  of  being  the  favourite  of  four 
successive  monarchs,  King  Hesrv  II.,  hing 
RiCHAnD,  King  John,  and  King  Henry  III.  On 
King  Richard's  going  to  the  Holy  Land,  he 
was  with  the  bishops  of  Durham  and  Ely,  and 
Hugh  Bardulph,  appointed  to  the  government  of 
the  realm.  King  John  granted  him  many  manors, 
and  King  Hf.nrv  I II.  made  bim  sheriff  over  twelve 
counties.  He  founded  the  abbeys  of  Tor  and 
Dunkeswell,  the  hospital  of  St.  John's,  Bridge- 
water,  and  the  priory  of  Motisford ;  he  likewise 
built  the  castle  of  Bridgewater,  made  the  haven, 
and  began  the  stone  bridge,  which  was  afterwards 
completed  by  one  Trivet.'  He  married  Beatrix  de 
Valle,  supposed  to  be  the  daughter  of  Reginald, 
Earl  of  Cornwall,  the  natural  son  of  King  Henry  I. 
as  Henry,  the  son  of  Reginald,  in  a  part  of  the 
manor  of  Karswell,  calls  him  brother.  His  sons 
dying  without  issue,  his  daughters  succeeded  to 
his  vast  inheritance,  one  of  whom  married  William 
de  la  Bruer,  the  great  grandfather  of  Lady  Uowne. 
Antony  de  la  Bruer,  the  father  of  the  above  named 
William,  held  Jirge  Bruer,  and  five  knights'  fees, 
in  King  Henry  II.  Tlie  heirs  male  failed  in  the 
latter  end  of  King  Henry  III.  The  heirs  general 
were  married  unto  Graas,  from  whom  is  descended 
Copleston,  and  unto  Sir  Ralph  Downe,  from  whom 
<lescended  the  Strodes,  of  Dorsetshire,  and  the 
Holcombes,  of  Hole. 

William  Holcombe,  the  first  of  the  family 
who  settled  in  Pembrokeshire,  and  was

the  county  of  Pembroke,  William,  who 
succeeded  him,  and  Jane,  first  married  to

been  elected  member  in  two  successive  parliaments  for  the  northern  division  of  the  same

which  e.Ktend   for  many  miles,  and  command   from  the  Charnwood  Hills  some  of  the 

most  extensive  views  in  the  kingdom.     To  the  present  possessor  (iarendon  also  owes

young,  he  travelled  into  Italy,  where  he  ac- 
quired a  great  taste  for  architecture,  of 
which  he  has  left  some  noble  specimens  at 
Garendon.  The  magnificent  gateway  (an 
exact  representation  of  Titus's  arch  at 
Rome),  the  temple  and  obelisk  in  the  park, 
as  well  as  the  beautiful  south  front  of  the 
house,  were  all  designed  by  him  ;  he  also 
laid  out  the  gardens,  now  so  deservedly  ad- 
mired, and  erected  at  one  end  a  Grecian 
portico,  approached  by  an  avenue  of  cypress 
trees.  He  died  M.P.  for  the  couiity  of 
Leicester,  which  he  had  represented  for 
fourteen  years,  6th  November,  1737,  and 
was  buried  in  .Shepeshed  Church,  where  he

*  Thomas  March  (Phillipps)  was  descended 
from  an  honourable  family  of  the  name,  of  French 
extraction,  for  several  g-enerations  settled  in  Kng- 
land,  and  closely  connected  with  the  family  of 
Lisle.  His  father,  Thomas  March,  esq.  who  d.

Sir  Ambrose  Phillipps,  of  Garendon.  His  uncle, 
John  March,  esq.  of  VVillesly  Park,  in  the  county 
of  Cambridge,  had  two  daughters,  co-heiresses, 

I.  Teresa,  m.  Thomas  Dashwood,  esq.  of

she  had  issue, 

1.  Bateman  Dashwood,  who  inherited

3.  Catherine  Dashwood. 

II.  Elizabeth,  m.  Richard  Howard,  fourth 
Earl  of  Effing-ham,  with  whom  the  earldom 
became  extinct,  11th  December,  1816,  for 
want  of  issue. 

t  Charles  Lisle,  esq.  of  Moyles  Court,  in  the 
county  of  Hants,  was  the  representative  of  a 
most  noble  and  ancient  family  who  were  formerly 
barons  of  England,  by  the  title  of  Lords  Lisle,  of 
the  Isle  of  Wight,  which  dignity  has  been  in 
abeyance  since  the  reign  of  Edward  IV.  Regi- 
nald Lisle  was  one  of  the  early  benefactors  of 
Garendon  Abbey,  founded  in  1133,  by  Robert 
Rossu,  the  good  Earl  of  Leicester,  as  he  was 
surnamed,  for  the  Cistercian  or  White  Monks, 
who  follow  the  rule  of  St.  Benedict  without  miti- 
gation, and  which  Abbey  was  destroyed  in  1541, 
by  Henry  VIU.  That  monarch  gave  it  with  the 
lands  belonging,  to  Thomas,  Earl  of  Rutland,  who 
sold  it  to  the  Duke  of  Buckingham,  and  from  him 
it  was  purchased  by  Sir  Ambrose  Phillipps,  in 
168;i,  in  which  family  it  has  remained  ever  since. 
Bossu,  Earl  of  Leicester,  afterwards  became  a 
mnnk  in  Garendon  Abbey,  where  he  ended  his 
days.  Of  this  family  of  Lisle,  we  have  several 
records  in  Camden's  Britannia.  The  great  Sir 
John  Lisle,  one  of  the  twelve  first  knights  of  the 
garter,  in  the  reign  of  EinvAUD  UI.  was  Lord  High 
Admiral  of  England,  and  fought  in  the  holy  wars,

I.  Elizabeth,  b.  in  1639,  m.  to  Henry 
Parry,  of  Penamser,  Merionethshire, 
and  had  issue. 
The  eldest  son, 

Charles  Lloyd,  esq.  of  Dolobran,  b.  9lh 
December,  1637,  attached  himself  in  the 
year  1662  to  George  Fox  and  his  i'ollowers, 
the  founders  of  the  Society  of  Friends.  The 
Independents  w  ere  at  that  period  the  domi- 
nant party,  the  Episcopal  establishment 
being  overthrown,  and  "  The  Friends"  were 
as  much  persecuted  by  them  as  they  were 
subsequently  after  the  Restoration.  It  was 
at  this  epoch  that  Mr.  Lloyd,  having  con- 
scientiously refused  to  take  the  oaths  of 
allegiance  and  supremacy  on  the  accession 
of  Charles  II.,  though  a  more  loyal  subject 
did  not  exist  in  the  country,  was  at  the  in- 
stigation of  his  envious  neighbour,  Edward 
Lord  Herbert  of  Cherbury,  who  desired  his 
estates,  subjected  to  great  persecutions  and 
losses.  His  possessions  were  put  under 
premunire,  his  cattle  sold,  and  his  mansion 
at  Dolobran  partially  destroyed.  Although 
a  magistrate  for  Montgomeryshire,  and  in 
nomination  for  its  shrievalty  at  the  time, 
the  penal  and  oppressive  laws  against  sec- 
tarians (arising  from  the  excesses  of  some) 
were  enforced  against  Mr.  Lloyd  with  uii- 



mitigated  rigour.*  He  was  taken,  with  seven 
otiier  j;iMitlL'ni('n,  wlio  had  embraced  the 
doctrines  of  the  **  Friends/'  to  Welshpool 
jail,  and  confined  there  until  the  act  of 
Jamks  II,  was  passed,  releasing  all  persons 
detained  for  religious  opinions,  a  period  of 
ten  years.  His  daughter  Elizabeth  mariied 
Joiin  I*eniberton,  esti.  of  Bennetts  Hill.t 
near  Birmingham,  at  whose  house  Mr. 
Charles  Lloyd  died.  He  m.  first,  llth  No-

•  "  In  the  beginning  of  the  year  1682  my  dear 
friend,  Charles  IJoyd,  and  1  went  to  visit  friends 
in  Herefordshire,  VVorcestershive,  &c.  Sec.  and 
came  through  their  meetings  to  London  before 
the  yearlv  meeting.  I  acquainted  my  friends, 
Geort;e  Whitt'iiead  ;itid  \V.  I't-nn,  that.  1  intended 
to  go  to  lord  Hide  t*)  acknowli'd^f  iils  kindness 
for  his  letter,  on  my  behitU",  to  liislioi)  Lloyd. 
Georjje  \V  hitehead  said  there  was  some  service  to 
be  done  for  our  sufiering  friends  in  liristol,  and  it 
was  thouffht  convenimit  that  three  of  tiie  city  and 
three  of  the  country  should  ^o  with  the  said  suf- 
ferings, and  desire  tlie  kindness  of  Lord  Hide  to 
present  them  to  the  king.  The  tliree  friends  for 
the  country  were  Charles  Lloyd,  Thomas  Wynne, 
and  myself;  for  the  city,  George  W  hitehead, 
Alexander  Parker,  and  one  more.  Our  friend 
George  Whitehead  told  me  that  our  countryman, 
Sir  Lionel  Jenkin,  secretary  of  state,  was  so  cross 
and  ill-humoured,  that  when  tlie  king  was  inclined 
to  moderation  and  tenderness  to  sulfering  hiends, 
he  often  stopped  and  hindered  the  relief  intended 
them.  When  we  went  to  Whitehall,  we  waited 
a  long  time  before  we  could  speak  witii  tlieni, 
they  being  upon  n  committee  a  considerable  time  ; 
but  wo  had  sent  in  by  the  door-keeper  to  acipiaint 
Lord  Hide  that  we  were  there,  and  in  time  they 
Bent  for  us  in.  The  secretary  looked  o;rini  upon 
U8.  I  went  to  Lord  Hide,  and  acknowled^'ed 
his  kindness  for  his  letter  on  my  behalf  to  the 
bishop.  He  told  me  that  I  should  tell  the  bishop 
there  would  be  liberty  of  conscimice  in  England. 
I  told  him,  I  did  say  so,  and  did  believe  it 
would  be  so  in  God's  time.  Secretary  Jeukin 
spoke  in  a  scornful  manner,  and  asked  me  what 
was  Welch  for  a  Quaker,  I  answered  him  Crynur 
Crynwyr,  it  being  the  singular  and  plurul  num- 
ber, hut  the  secretary  said,  we  had  no  Welch 
for  it,  for  there  wore  no  (junkers  in  the  Romans' 
days.  iMv  friend  Charles  Lloyd  answered,  '  If 
thou  didst  ask  my  friend  the  ipiestion  arij^dit,  he 
faiilh  answered  thee  ri-^ht,  fur  there  is  Kni;lisli, 
Welch,  Liitin,  (ireek,  and  Hebrew  for  a  Quaker.' 
So  the  secretary  said,  *  Sir,  1  understand  Welch 
pretty  well,  and  English  and  I-atin  and  Greek  ; 
but  if  you  go  to  your  Hebrew,  I  know  not  what 
to  8uy  to  you,*  I  left  my  friend  ('.  Lloyd  to  en- 
gat^e  with  this  peevish  countryman,  and  presitnted 
Lord  Hide  with  a  long  list  of  names  of  men,  wo- 
men, and  children,  in  llieir  several  prisons  at 
Bristol.  1  clesired  him  to  ))e  so  kind  as  to  present 
their  suflerings  to  the  king,  which  ho  said  he 
would,  and  our  friend  George  W  hitehead  spoke 
ftrthtfr  to  him.     Then  1  turned  to  the  secretory. 

Lort,  by  Olive,  his  wife,  daughter  of  Sir

8th  February,  \6S6,  Ann  Lawrence,  of  Lea, 
in  the  county  of  Hereford.  She  (/.  2nd 
March,  170S,  By  his  first  wife,  who  was 
born  '2nd  November,  1()33,  and  d.  7th  Fe-

I.  Chahlks,  of  Dolobrau,  h.   IHtli  Au- 
gust,   IG(i2,  who   died  2Ist  January, 

who  directed  his  words  to  me,  and  spoke  to  him 
thus  in  Welch  : 

*'  '  Mae  yn  ddrwg  p^ennif,  fod  vu  o  Hiliogaeth 
yr  hen  Krittaniaid  yr  rhai  ydderbyniodd  y  Grefydd 
Gristianogol  yn  gyntaf  yd  Loeger  yn  erbyn  yr 
rhai  sydd  gwedi  derbyn  y  wir  Gristianogol  Gre- 
fydd yr  awr  hon.' 

'*  The  English  is  thus  : 

*•  '  I  am  sorry  that  one  of  the  stock  of  the  an- 
cient Britons,  who  first  received  the  christian  faith 
in  England,  should  be  against  those  who  have 
received  the  true  Christian  faith  in  this  day.' 

*'  He  replied.  He  was  not  against  our  triends, 
but  he  said  our  friends  gave  their  votes  for  the 
election  of  parliament  men  that  were  against  the 
king's  interest.  I  told  him,  It  was  our  birthright, 
as  we  were  freeholders  and  burgesses,  to  elect  men 
([ualiHed  to  serve  botli  the  king  and  country,  but 
how  they  were  corrupted,  when  they  came  within 
tliese  walls,  I  knew  not.  The  secretary  would 
have  engaged  farther  with  me  in  disjiute  about 
reliv^ion.  1  told  him  he  was  an  ancient  man,  and 
that  they  had  been  a  long  time  there  upon  their 
business,  and  if  he  would  be  pleased  to  dismiss 
us  then,  and  appoint  what  time  we  should  some 
morning  wait  up(tn  him,  we  would,  if  he  pleased, 
s])end  an  hour  or  two  with  him  in  discourse  about 
reli^-^ion.  Upon  which  he  took  otV  his  hat,  and 
thanked  me  kindly  for  my  civility  ;  but  we  heard 
no  more  of  him  about  the  dispute.  Upon  the 
whole,  our  friend  (!.  W  hitehead  told  me  he  was 
more  moderate  to  friends  afterwards  than  he  had 
been  before.  The  number  ol"  prisoners  in  the 
list  delivered  to  Lord  Hide  to  be  presented  to 
the  kinj;  amounted  to  in  both  ]>risons  one  hundred 
and  tliiity-nine,  of  which  there  were  ei<;hteen 
aped  women  from  sixty  and  upwards,  and  eight 
chddren.  In  the  latter  end  of  the  list  it  was  said, 
'  lUessed  are  the  merciful,  for  they  shall  obtain 
mercy.'  "

was  a  person  of  considerable  importance  iii 
the  time  of  James  11.  and  from  the  following 
facts  mentioned  by  his  son,  the  Right  Hon. 
Edward  Hopkins,  was  an  active  opponent  of 
the  court,  and  promoter  of  the  revolution. 

"  in  the  year  1607,"  says  Edward  Hop- 
kins, "whilst  the  queen  was  at  Bath  (the  oc- 
casion of  which  jorney  thither  the  year  fol- 
lowing, gave  such  a  suspicion  of  indirect 
practices  to  the  nation,  by  the  birth  of  the 
pretender)  King  James  made  a  progress 
througli  a  part  of  the  kingdom,  and  lay  at 
my  father's  house,  where,  the  morning  after 
his  arrival,  public  mass  was  said  in  the  great 
dining  room,  where  I  was  present  at  the  late 
celebration  of  it,  my  age  screening  from 
any  observation  in  ray  behaviour  by  those 
who  attended  the  service.  The  next  act  of 
devotion  was  touching  for  the  king's  evil,  by 
his  majesty,  in  our  great  church  ;  the  king 
was  very  gracious  to  my  father,  though  he 
had  been  some  time  before  (during  Mon- 
mouth's rebellionf)  distinguished  as  a  malig- 

t  The  report  from  the  municipal  authorities  of 
Coventry-,  shows  the  great  interest  which  Wr. 
Hopkins  took  in  the  affairs  of  the  Uuke  of  Mon- 

Coventry,  9th  September,  1682. 

My  Lord, — The  Uuke  of  Monmouth's  coming 
here  gives  us  this  occasion  to  present  your  lord- 
ship with  this  account  following,  of  the  manner  of 
his  receiition,  and  what  past  thereupon  ;  and  first 
we  must  crave  leave  to  begin  at  Saturday,  the  2nd 
instant,  which  morning,  at  the  post  house  in  this 
citty,  was  tlie  Lord  Colchester,  who  then  be- 
spoake  fourteen  post  horses  for  his  grace  his  use, 
to  be  ready  on  Fryday  morning,  the  8th  of  this 
instant  September.  In  order  to  liis  grace  his  re- 
ception, a  feast  was  prepared,  and  was  on  Thurs- 
day last  at  the  Starre  Inn,  in  this  citty,  where 
most  or  all  of  the  most  considerable  dissenters  dined, 
and  stayed  his  grace  his  coming,  being  introduced 
by  Mr.  Hopkins  our  late  burgess,  who  went  to  Da- 
ventry  to  meet  him,  and  brought  him  to  toune 
about  nine  at  night,  the  bells '  then  jjingiug  and 
some  bonfii-es  lighted  in  his  way.     He  ahghted  at. 



naiit,  disarmed  and  confined  to  his  honse,  at 
the  same  time  the  prisons  being  filled  nitli 
those  of  lesser  rank.  It  was  intimated  to  my 
father  by  some  oC  the  |)ri]Ki|ial  lords  of  the 
court,  tliat  the  king  was  disposed  to  shew  him 
some  public  mark  of  favor,  but  lie  with  du- 
tyfulness  and  decency  declined." 

"At  the  latter  end  of  the  year  1688, 
the  Prince  of  Orani;e  landing  in  the  west, 
and  Prince  (ieorge  of  Denmark  going  to 
liim,  his  Princess,  Anne,  the  king's  young- 
est daughter,  was  put  under  coutinenient  at 
St.  James's,  from  which  place,  having  con- 
certed measures  with  Dr.  Compton,  Bishop 
of  London,  and  others,  she  made  her  escajie 
in  th(!  Uiiddle  of  the  night,  and  coaches  be- 
ing provided  and  stationed  in  a  i)ro|)er 
place  without  one  of  the  gates  of  the  city, 
she  made  long  jorneys,  taking  no  more  rest 
than  was  absolutely  necessary  till  she  reached 
Nottingham,  there  she  was  joined  by  Lord 
Devonsliire,  nniny  other  lords  and  gentle- 
men of  note,  of  those  counties  who  had  not 
the  opportunity  to  appear  in  arms  for  the 
I'rince  of  Orange.  Her  Koyal  Highness's 
numbers  much  increasing,  and  this  body 
being  chii'lly  under  the  command  of  Lord 
iJevoiishire  ami  the  Hishop  of  London, 
she  made  but  a  short  stay  at  Nottingham, 
and  from  thence  came  to  Coventry  to  my 
father's  house,  where,  during  her  sojourn 
part  of  three  days,  slie  received  an  account

of  tliem  attended  him  in  liiscb;inil)er,  where,  luok-

SJtedouiie  andsayd  littltMnore  than  tiiat  he  thought 
there  hud  bin  sonic  gentlemen  in  this  citty.  .Soone 
alter  his  arrivall,  the  other  streets  were  tilled  with 
bonfires,  and  jierticularly  one  beginning  at  the 
cross,  which  Aiderman  Nathaniell  ilarrinian  per- 
ceiving, went  and  threw  downe  the  fagotts,  dis- 
percing  the  company,  charging  them  in  the  king's 
nanu*  peaceably  to  depart ;  but  thev  soon  rallved, 
anil  began  a  second  bontire  lower  in  tlie  same 
street,  which  the  said  alderman  likewise  put  out, 
and  connnanded  them  agaiae  to  depart  in  peace, 
but  tiioy  flocked  about  him,  shouting,  a  .Monmouth 
—  no  ^  orko  !  and  some  offered  violence  to  hini, 
but  he  defended  himseli'e  so  that  he  had  n<it  much 
hurt ;  .so  bkewise  a  third  and  fourth  lire  he  extin- 
^u.sht.  It  so  happened  that  -Mr.  .Maiorwas  nc»t  at 
home  till  eleven  nt  ni'^ht,  when  hearing  of  this 
disorder,  he  cnme  to  the  alderman  at  tlie  cross, 
where  ihere  was  a  (ire  and  rabble,  whom  they 

\\  e  must  not  omit  to  tell  your  lordship,  that 
Wedne.sdav  last  being  our  couucill-liuuse  day,  some 
members  thereof  moved  themuior  that  an  entertain- 
ment might  be  ordered  in  the  nanu<  u(  the  corjiora-

some  of  his  brethren,  so  nothing  wa.ntlone.  Never-,  on  'I  hnrsday  lught,  tlioso  other,  (viz) 
Alderman  Xavlour,  Alderman  Fnmcis  Ifarnman,

Tenre,  who  in  in  nomination  for  the  ensuing  mnior, 
orderwl  a  citty  officer  to  bring  n  present  of  wine, 

by  express  that  the  king,  who  was  before 
fled  from  Salisbury  Plain  to  London,  had 
abandoned  the  city  upon  the  Prince  of 
Orange  marching  towards  it,  as  bis  majesty 
did  afterwards  out  of  the  kingdom.  U[)Oii 
this  Princess  Anne  set  forward  for  London, 
and  that  very  night  the  false,  but  memorable, 
alarm,  which  was  at  the  same  time  spread 
all  over  the  kingdom,  reached  us,  that  the 
king's  Irish  army  of  papists  was  destroying 
all  by  fire  and  sword,  and  such  was  the 
panick  that  every  one  believed  ihey  were  at 
the  next  town.  The  confusion  was  so  visi- 
ble in  every  countenance,  that  it  was  no 
wonder  I  had  the  most  dreadful  apprehen- 
sions, and  it  was  by  the  whole  family  in- 
creased, by  my  father's  being  absent,  for  he 
was  gone  to  escort  the  princess  a  day  or  two 
on  her  joriiey  to  London."

"  It  was  near  two  months  after  the  arrival 
of  my  Lord  Portland,  before  he  made  his 
public  entry,  which  was  most  magnificent. 
Tlie  procession  was  from  the  hotel  Ram- 
boiiillet  to  the  Hotel  des  Ambassadeurs, 
where  his  excellency,  and  all  of  us  of  his 
suite,  were  sumptuously  treated  at  the  King 
of  France's  expense,  for  three  days.  It  hap- 
pening in  the  time  of  Lent,  to  observe  strictly 
the  ordinances  of  holy  church,  no  flesh  was 
allowed.  It  was  wonderful  to  see  such  a 
number  and  such  a  variety  of  dishes  without 
it,  the  height  of  French  cookei-y.  Several 
diflerentsoupes,  fricasys,  and  ragouts  offish, 
so  disguised  as  might  well  deceive  either  the 
eye  or  the  pallet. 

"  I  never  yet  in  one  day,  nor  ever  can 
again  see  such  a  number  of  people  together, 
as  lined  the  streets  of  Paris  the  day  of  the 
entry.  The  procession  had  near  three  miles 
to  make.  Tlie  windows  were  taken  away, 
and  as  the  streets  are  regular  and  the  houses 
of  several  stories,  it  was  an  agreeable  sight 
to  see,  upon  turning  into  a  street,  so  many 
rows  like  garlands  appearing,  the  houses 
being  mostly  filled  by  ladies.  The  gentle- 
men were  mostly  in,  upon,  or  about  the 
coaches,  of  which  there  were  a  continued 
line  on  each  side  of  the  streets,  near  the 

"The  ambassador  had  five  or  six  eoaches  of 
his  o%vn,  of  great  price  and  exquisite  taste, 
though  the  French  thought  they  had  not 
enough,  the  appearance  of  state  not  having 
sufficient  of  that  gawdiness,  gilding,  and 
carving  on  the  outsides,  which  they  affect  on 
such  occasions  ;  not  considering  that  all  was 
of  a-piece,  both  without  and  within,  magni- 
ficent with  elegance,  and  costly,  both  as  to 
the  painting,  carving,  gold  lace,  fringe,  &c. 
"  In  the  cortage  there  was  one  magnificent 
chariot,  drawn  by  a  set  of  fine  Napolitan 
horses,  of  a  lively  grey  colour,  beautiful 
creatures,  and  highly  managed;  their  har- 
ness, reins,  and  ribbons  on  their  manes  were 
orange  colour,  which  had  an  agreeable  effect. 
His  excellency  made  a  present  afterwards  of 
these  horses,  of  which  I  think  he  had  eight, 
to  the  King  of  France. 

"A  matter  happened  a  little  before  the 
entry,  which  caused  a  small  fracas,  and  em- 
barrassed the  ambassador.  Before  that  mi- 
nister's coaches  there  are  those  of  the  French 
ministers,  and  of  all  the  princes  and  prin- 
cesses of  the  blood  (then  very  numerous), 
to  attend  the  entries.  A  very  few  days 
before,  a  list  appeared  at  the  hotel,  allotting 
us  all  to  the  coaches  we  were  to  be  in,  to 
avoid  confusion,  in  which  it  appeared  that 
some  Dutch  of  the  first  quality,  and  two  or 
three  deputies  from  the  principality  of 
Orange,  had  provision  made  for  them.  This, 
as  it  was  an  Englisli  embassy,  gave  an  alarm. 



anil  caused  a  great  dispute.  A  meeting 
hereupon  was  appointed  that  evening,  at  a 
tavern,  when  the  greater  part  attended.  I 
own  I  was  one  of  the  number  of  tlie  muti- 
neers. It  was  then  resolved  that  we  could 
not  assist  at  the  entry  unless  this  matter  was 
rectified,  and  afterwards  application  was 
made  to  Mr.  Prior,  to  acquaint  liis  excel- 
lence tlierewith,  in  tlie  most  respectful  man- 
ner. Satisfaction  was  given,  how  much  soever 
against  the  grain,  but  it  was  impossible  to 
adhere  to  so  wrong  a  judged  scheme,  so  that 
we  saw  those  gentlemen  that  day  not  as 
actors  but  spectators. 

"  There  was  another  difficulty  with  respect 
to  the  Duke  of  Argyle,  then,  "in  his  fatlier's 
lifetime,  Lor<l  Loriie :  he  objected  to  the 
rank  given  liim  in  company  uitli  our  lords 
(for  the  union  was  not  then  made);  lie  claimed 
his  place,  however,  according  to  the  antient- 
ness  of  his  family,  urging  that  the  embassy 
was  from  Scotland  as  well  as  from  England, 
the  King  being  King  of  both.  The  matter 
was  too  nice  and  delicate  for  my  lord  ani- 
bas.sador  to  decide  in  favour  of  his  claim,  so 
he  de(rlincd  to  attend. 

"The  regard  paid  to  A'ihc/ William's  first 
embassy  was  so  great,  the  orders  given  were 
so  positive  from  the  court  of  Versailles  to 
the  people  of  that  of  St.  (Jerraain's  not  to 
insult  the  English,  ami  they  were  so  well 
observed,  that  no  disorder  happened,  though 
we  daily  met  in  the  same  cofl'ee-liousr,  which 
was  the  resort  of  all  ICuglisli  gentlemen  :  tlie 
common  civility  of  salutes  passed,  but  very 
t'uw  of  us  mixed  with  them  at  the  same  tables 
or  in  conversation. 

"  ^"'.'/  Jamks'.s  Queen  came,  according  to 
her  custom,  to  perform  her  devotions  and 
pass  the  holy  week  at  the  Convent  of  Nuns, 
at  Charllot,  near  Paris,  whither  one  day  the 
pretended  Prince  of  Wales  came  to  dine 
with  her,  of  which  I  was  advertised  by  one 
of  their  court,  who  had  married  my  aunt,  the 
widow  Liidy  Carteret,  sister  to  my  mother. 
I  enibraced  this  opportunity  of  satisfying  the 
curiosity  I  had  to  see  a  person  1  had  from 
his  birth  heard,  and  was  likely  to  hear  so 
much  talk  of,  since  I  might  view  him,  as  in- 
cognito, upon  his  taking  coach.  I  took  a 
friend  with  me,  and  we  found  several  Eng- 
lish and  others  there,  who  had  received  the 
same  notice,  and  who  had  the  same  c-uriosity. 
An  incident  happened  there  which  put  seve- 
ral of  us  under  an  unhappy  dilemma,  <Mlher 
of  a  seeming  afl'ront  to  him,  which  was  not 
desirable  nor  becoming,  or  else  to  do  an  act 
both  contrary  to  the  laws  of  our  country,  and 
to  our  own  principles.  We  were  (beini;  of 
difTercnt  nations)  (ifty  or  sixty  in  number, 
ranged  in  a  long  and  spacious  entry,  through 
which  he  was  to  to  tiikn  coach.  I'pon 
Ilia  coming  out  of  the  door  of  the  convent, 
altendt'd  by  the  Earl  of  Melforl,  one  of  their 
chief  minister*,  they  had  not  gone  many  sipps 

before  that  lord,  seeing  two  English  gentle- 
men of  good  families  and  considerable  estates 
in  the  entry,  stopped  the  pretended  Prince, 
and  in  a  manner  presented  them  to  him. 
Whatever  their  inidiiiations  might  be,  it 
drew  them  into  a  difficulty,  but  upon  this 
surprise  they  kissed  his  hand.  We  who 
were  nearer  to  the  court-yard  made  our 
retreat  with  some  precipitation,  choosing 
rather  to  be  liable  to  their  observation  of  it, 
than  to  run  the  risk  of  sufl'ering  under  the 
like  embarrassment,  not  knowing  but  as  En- 
glishmen, the  gracious  compliment  might 
liave  been  otl'ered  to  us  all.  This  was  an 
egregious  folly  in  Melfort,  as  my  uncle 
afterwards  allowed  and  blamed  him  for  it, 
since  it  exposed  these  gentlemen,  whose  in- 
clinations we  knew  were  towards  that  court, 
and  their  visits  to  the  ambassador  were  only 
such  as  decency  recpiired  :  however  this 
faux  pas  discovered  that  they  had  paid  court 
to  and  were  accpiainted  with  Melfort,  which 
otherwise  might  still  have  been  a  secret.  I 
cannot  but  observe  that  I  afterwards  sat  in 
liarliament  with  one  of  these  persons  several 
years,  being  a  knight  of  a  great  shire,  and 
chose  by  the  high  church  for  the  security  of 

the  Protestant  religion The  next 

morning  Mr.  Prior  came  into  my  chamber 
and  asked  me  how  I  had  slept  after  com- 
niittiiig  treason.  I  said  I  was  guilty  of  none. 
Now,  says  he,  you  will  pretend  that  you  did 
not  kiss  hands  at  Charllot .'  I  answered 
with  a  smile,  that  I  found  he  had  good  intel- 
ligence. Well,  says  he,  I  know  you  did 
/lut,  but  such  did  ;  can  you  deny  it .'  If  you 
know  it  I  need  not  turn  informer,  and  shall 
be  mute  upon  these  interrogatories.  Yes, 
says  he,  I  know  who  did,  and  the  King  will 
know  it  as  soon  as  the  next  courier  gets  to 
London.  In  a  eoiirt  of  beggars  a  minister 
can  never  want  spies,  and  there  was  nothing 
done  at  St.  (Jermain's  that  was  long  a  secret." 
M  r.  Hopkins  had  afterwards  the  high  honour 
of  accompanying  the  ambassador  on  a  visit 
to  the  Prince  of  (Jonde,  at  Chantilly,  and

This  family,  influential  both  in  Kiigland 
and  in  Ireland,  deduces  its  origin  from  Sir 
Hrhaiu)  IE  Forte,  a  gallant  soldier  in  the 
army  of  (he  (IonqI'eror,  who  is  said  to  have 
protected  his  royal  master  at  the  celebrated 
battle  of  Hastings  by  bearing  a  slout  shield 
before  him  ;  from  wlii<di  circumstance,  the 
French  woril  "  Kscne"  fa  shield)  was  added 
to  the  original  surname  of  "  Forte,"  and 
thus  gave  FoKTEsi  IF..  From  this  warrior, 
through  a  long  line  of  eminent  personages, 
a  direct  inali-  descent  is  brought  down  to 
the  present  period,  but  as  we  have  given

Previous  to  obtaining  the  attested  docu- 
ments from  France,  with  the  genealogy  of 
their  ancestors,  the  representative  of  the

Nicolas,  received  a  grant  of  arms  from  the

Crest — A  demi-eagle,  sable,  wings  ele-

augmentation  to  the  above  crest :  "  The 
word  '  Pilot,'  inscribed  on  the  rim  of  the

The  family  of  Were,  or,  as  it  was  for- 
merly spelt,  Wkaue,  is  of  great  antiquity  in 
the  counties  of  Devon  and  Somerset.  Tra- 
dition states,  that  their  original  name  was 
GiFFAKD,  a  younger  branch,  it  is  repre- 
sented, of  the  GlFFARDS  of  BltlGHTLEY,  and 
Halswortiiy  ;  and  that  they  took  the  name 
of  Weare  only,  upon  inheriting  that  part  of 
the  property  of  the  lionse  of  Giffard  called 
Weahe-Giffaud  ;  whereupon,  as  was  the 
custom  at  that  period,  they  assumed  dilTerent 
arms.  How  far  this  statement  is  correct,  it 
is  impossihie  at  this  distant  date  to  establish, 
but  these  facts  have  been  asserted  by  autho- 
rities entitled  to  consideration.  Certain  it  is, 
however,  that  the  family  of  Weare,  or,  as 
now  spelt.  Were,  is  of  long  standing  in  So- 
mersetshire, as  well  as  in  Devonshire,  and 
the  arras  annexed  have  been  used  by  the 
existing  brancli,  whose  genealogy  we  now 
give,  for  many  generations,  as  various  en- 
gravings of  them  on  old  seals,  plate,  &c. 
still  in  possession  of  it.s  diB'erent  members, 
fully  confirm.  Those  arms  are  to  be  found 
in  the  third  edition  of  "  Guillim's  Heraldry," 
published  in  Ui:iH,  and  again  in  tlie  edition 
published  in  1C79,  wherein  it  is  stated,  at 
page  206,  "  He  beareth,  argent,  on  a  bend 
vert,  between  six  cross  croslets  (itched,  gules, 
three  croysiers,  or,  by  the  name  of  Weare,

Filley,"  (the  ancestor  of  the  present  Earl 
Fortescue.)  "  This  coat  standeth  in  Weare

Weare-Giftanl.  it  is  believed,  passed  to  the 
family  of  Deynsell,  by  the  marriage  of  an 
heiress  of  the  house  of  Weare,  between  the 
years  1440  and  I4.')0,  and  it  was  carried  to 
that  of  Fortescue  about  the  year  )4H0,  by 
the  heiress  of  Deynsell.  li\  ii  collection  of 
abstracts  of  early'charters  in  the  library  of 
Sir  Kichard  Phillips,  hart,  there  is  a  deed 
relating  to  the  lainily  of  Weare,  of  the  con- 
cluding part  of  which  the  following  is  a  cor-

Tii(iM\s  Were,  eldest  surviving  son  of 
Robert  Weare,  esq.  of  Sampford  Arnnd.ll, 
ill  the  coiiiiiy  of  Devon,  who,  it  appears, 
•'■pelt  his  iiami  in  the  aneieiit  style. 

Thomas  Weare,*  his  son,  however,  wrote 
it  in  the  modern  mode,  which  has  been 
continued  by  his  descendants.  He  resided 
at  Wellington  in  the  beginning  of  the  last 
century,  and  was  possessed  of  the  lands  of 
"  Great  and  Little  Sowdeii,"  "  the  West 
Leigh  Estates,"  "  Old  Baums,"  "  Escotts," 
"  Osmonds,"  "  Penslade,"  and  other  pro- 
perty in  the  county  of  Devon  ;  together  with 
the  manor  of  "  Runnington,"  "  Landcox," 
"  Uockwell-Green,"  "  Perry-Elm,"  "  Jur- 
ston,"  and  other  estates  in  the  county  of  So- 
merset. He  married  about  the  year  1716, 
Elizabeth,  daughter  of  Peter  Berry,  esq. 
and  had  issue  eight  sons,  between  whom 
he  divided  his  ditferent  estates,  and  three 
daughters,  viz. 

I.  Robert,  of  Runnington  Manor,  of 
whom  presently. 

•  Thomas  \Vere'.s  second  brother  was  Peter 
Were,  esq.  of  Sampford  Arundel  and  Were's  Cot, 
near  Welliiij^toii,  whose  son  Ellis  was  a  partner  in 
the  firm  of  Curtis,  Were,  Robarts  and  Co.  bankers 
in  London.  EUis's  descendants  are  'I'homas,  of 
Were's  Cot,  and  Samj)ford  Arundel,  who  is  mar- 
ried and  has  seven  children,  Robert,  Peter,  and 
J  osepiu 

Tliomas  Were  had  also  one  sister,  Ehzabetli, 
who  m.  George  Fox,  of  Perran,  near  Falmouth. 

Tlie  greater  part  of  the  difterent  branches  of  the 
family  of  Were,  together  with  most  of  those  of  their 
several  alliances,  have  for  many  generations  be- 
longed lo  the  Society  of  Friends,  of  which  liighly 
respectable  sect,  very  many  of  them  still  are  m'em- 

Another  branch  of  the  ancient  family  of  Were 
became  settled  in  the  vicinity  of  Plymouth  about 
the  year  1700,  by  a  marriage  with  Joan,  daughter 
and  at  length  sole  heir  of  John  Reid,  esq.  of  Bur- 
riiiglon.  in  Devonshire.  The  son  of  tliis  marriao-e, 
John  Were,  esi|.  of  ISurrington,  who  died  hi  1778, 
left  the  whole  of  his  properly  to  his  only  child

family  by  sale.

MULLOY,  COOTE,  esq.  of  Hug^hstown,  in  the  county  of  Roscommon,  chief  and 
representative  of  the  ancient  Milesian  family  of  O'Mulloy, 
**  Standard  Bearers  to  the  Crowne  of  England  in  Ireland,'* 
m.  in  1799,  Mary,  eldest  daughter  of  William  Lloyd,  esq. 
of  Rockville,  in  the  same  county,  and  has  issue, 

CooTE,  in  holy  orders,  who  wedded  Alicia,  eldest  dau. 
of  the  late  Robert  King  Duke,  esq.  of  New  Park,  in 
the  county  of  Sligo,  and  has  two  sons, 


Mr.  MuUoy  succeeded  his  father  in  1S25.     He  is  a  magis- 
trate and  deputy-lieutenant  for  the  county  of  Roscommon. 


The  family  of  O'Mulloy,*  of  acknow- 
ledged Milesian  descent,  enjoys  the  heredi- 
tary honor  of  standard-bearer  to  the  crown 
of  England   in   Ireland.     It   derives   from 

*  The  following  are  some  curious  particulars  re- 
lative to  the  early  members  of  the  family- 

Upon  the  death  of  O'Hethe,  Girald  Barry  (com- 
monly called  Cambrensis,  archdeacon  of  St.  Da- 
vid's) having  refused  the  see  (that  of  Ferns)  fi-om 
John,  Earl  of  Morton  (aftervrards  king),  Albin 
O'Mulloy  was  elected.  He  was  first  a  monk,  and 
afterwards  Abbot  of  Baltinglass,  and  appears  to  ' 
have  been  a  zealous  but  intemperate  man.  He 
had  a  very  angry  dispute  with  Cambrensis  in 
Mid-lent  1185.     It  was  as  follows  : 

John  Comin  (the  Ai  bishop)  having  convened 
a  synod  in  Christchurch,  preached  himself  the  first 
day  on  the  Sacraments.  On  the  second  day,  Albin 
O'Mulloy  (Abbot  of  Baltinglass,  afterwards  Bishop 
of  Ferns)  preached  on  clerical  strictness  of  morals; 
whereon  he  inveighed  bitterly  against  the  English 
clergy,  who  came  into  Ireland,  and  bv  their  evil 
examples  had  vitiated  the  probity  and  innocence 
of  the  clergy  of  Ireland,  wlilch  drew  upon  him 
Cambrensis  the  moment  he  had  ended. 

Albin  engag'ed  in  a  far  more  serious  and  reason- 
able contest  with  William  Marshal,  Earl  of  Pem- 
broke, who  hud  forcibly  disseised  him  of  two 
manors  belonging  to  bis  bishoprick.  The  earl 
being  contumacious  died  under  excommunication, 
and  in  1220  the  bishop  went  to  London  to  com- 
plain of  the  injury  done  to  the  church.  The  king 
commanded  him  to  go  to  the  earl's  tomb  and  ab- 
solve him,  and  promised  he  would  endeavour  to 
obtain  him  satisfaction  from  the  young  Earl  Wil- 

Whereupon  the  bishop,  accompanied  by  the 
kinp;,  (Henry  III  )  went  to  the  i^rave,  and  said, 
*'  O  William,  that  here  liest  wrapjied  in  the  bonds 
of  excommunication,  if  what  thou  hast  injuriously 
taken  be  restored  by  the  king,  or  thy  heirs,  or  thy 
friends,    with    competent   satisfaction,     I  absnlte 

O'NiALL,  of  the  nine  hostages.  Monarch  of 
ALL  Ireland,  A.  D,  371,  characterized  as 
"  one  of  the  most  gallant  of  all  the  princes 
of  the  Milesian  race." 

thee;  otherwise,  I  ratify  the  sentence ;  that  being 
wrapped  in  thy  sins,  thou  raayest  remain  damned 
for  ever !  " 

The  king  was  displeased  with  the  rigour  of  the 
bishop,  but  could  not  prevail  with  the  young  earl 
to  restore  the  manors.  Tlie  young  earl  and  his 
four  brothers  died  afterwards,  without  issue  male, 
and  the  superstitious  people  thought  it  to  be  the 
effect  of  the  excommunication.  Our  prelate  died 
at  an  advanced  age  about  the  close  of  the  year 
1222,  having  governed  the  see  of  Ferns  thirty-six  - 

Curious  circumstances  attending  the  election  of 
two  knights  of  the  shire,  to  serve  in  parliament 
for  the  King's  County,  which  election  took  place 
20th  April,  1613.  • 

Desiderata  Curiosa  Hibernica,  vol.  i.  p.  349. 
The  freeholders  assembled  in  Philipstown  to 
elect  knights,  and  some  of  the  Irish  having  con- 
sulted together  the  same  morning,  attended  the 
sheriff  to  the  shire-house,  between  eight  and  nine 
o'clock,  where  the  writ  being  read,  Sir  Francis 
Rushe,  and  Sir  Adam  Loftus,  (ancestor  of  the 
first  Viscounts  Ely),  were  propounded  bv  some 
of  the  freeholders  as  the  fittest  men  to  be  elected. 
But  Philip  ODagan  delivered  to  the  sheriff  two 
several  lists  of  names  in  jiaper,  who  (he  said)  had 
given  their  names  for  "  Sir  John  Mac  Coughlan 
and  Callagh  O'Mulloy,"  whom  they  had  chosen 
already,  and  would  have  none  others  ;  and  upon 
delivering  the  list,  they  cried  out"  Mac  Coughlan 
and  O'Mulloy!"  The  other  side,  to  the  number 
of  sixteen,  gave  their  votes  puhliclu  for  Sir  F, 
Rushe  and  Sir  A.  Loftus.  The  under-sheriff  re- 
ceived the  papers,  and  made  up  the  indentures  for 
Mac  Coughlan  and  O'Mulloy,  (having  the  greatest 
number  of  names  in  the  I'tst),  which  indentures 
were  accepted  by  the  high-sheriff  j  yet,  notwith-

The  Mulloy  or  O'iNIiilloy  family  is  conse- 
quently of  the  Heremonean  line,  and  enti-

sively belongs  to  the  discendaiits  of  Nial/,

liighest  station  amonf;st  the  distinguished 
families  of  Ireland.* 

The  ancient  territory  of  this  family,  viz. 
Fei-iall,f  (now  comprchendini;  the  haronies 
of  Eglish  and  ISallyboy,  in  the  King'scounty) 
was  in  their  possession  from  the  Tjth  century 
until  /u)i</  iiflir  the  invasion  of  the  English 
in  1179;  in  fad,  until  ahout  the  year  1(>41, 
the  period  of  the  {jrcat  rfbcllion:  for  in  the 
proclamation  of  attainder,  which  followed 
the  failure  of  Roger  Moore's  insurrection, 
we  see  enumerated  anujngst  his  principal 
abettors  the  names  of  Art.  O'Mulloy,  of 
Kalhlin  Castle,  aiul  Owen  O'Mulloy,  ol 
Clonkeene  Gastle.J 

In  the  "  Desiderata  Cnriosa  Hiheriiica," 
(\ol.  ii.  p.  ,V2.)  the  territory  of  Fcrcall  is 
slated  to  have  been  4!>,2;J5  acres  in  ex- 
tent. A  recent  writer  of  high  respectability 
in  the  "  Beauties  of  Ireland,"  observes, 
"that  there  are  still  in  the  King's  County 
some  respi'ctable  families  belonging  to  the 
Sept  of  O'Mulloy,  and  the  ruins  of  many 
ancient  castles  attest  their  former  conse- 
quence and  dignity."  In  "Slater's  Itine- 
rary," (King's  County),  as  well  as  in  the 
writer  above  named,  we  find  the  following 

standing,  he  returned  Sir  A.  Loftug  and  Sir  F.

This  di'firinncy  was  not  unroniinon  amongst  the 
magnates  of  the  land,  for  we  read  that  amongst 
other  articles  of  ngn'enu'nl  by  whiili  Miinough 
O'lJrien,  I'rnice  of  'Ibomrind,  obtained  (in  .lune, 
l.Vt.'))  tlie  favour  of  Aiii/;  lliMiv  \lll.,  who  cre- 
ated bim  in  the  same  year  Karl  of  Thomnnd,  la*

enumerated,  as  some  of  the  caslks  here 
alluded  to  : 

1.  Geslid  Castle. 

2.  Erry  Castle  (ruins). 

3.  Lemaiiagh  Castle. 

4.  Broghill  Castle. 

5.  Rathliu  Castle. 

6.  Clonkeene  Castle,  &c.  &,c. 
Surnames  were  first  given  to  distinguish 

families  by  Brian  Boiroimhe,  (the  hero  of 
the  celebrated  battle  of  Clontarf).  The 
practice  was  then  borrowed  by  the  Germans, 
French,  and  Italians. §  The  name  of  Mulloy 
is  derived  from  the  Irish  words  "  MiiUuaiili 
nil  IakiIi"  i.e.  "  t/ie  front  of  the  buttle  "\\ 
aiul  this  brave  clan,  by  their  unwearied  op- 
position to  the  English  in  defence  of  their 
hereditary  dominions,  while  a  tenable  posi- 
tion remained,  abuiulaiitly  proved  that  they 
merited  the  appellation.  Kor  a  space  of 
4H4  years,  that  is  from  1 172  (when  the  Eng- 
lish first  got  possession  of  the  island)  to 
l.j.')7,  (the  ;3rd  of  PiiiLil"  and  Mauv),  they 
maintained  their  independence  against  the 
invaders.  Indeed,  ai'cording  to  Sir  Janu-s 
\\  are,  they  were  in  opposition  to  the  Eng- 
lish government  at  a  later  period,  for  soon 
alter  the  appointment  of  .Sir  Henry  .Sidney, 
as  sole  lord  juslice,  we  Iind,  to  use  the  words 
of  .Sir  .lames, tt  "he  directed  his  colours 
against  Arthur  O'Mulloy,  Lord  of  Fercally, 
who  harboured  rebels  and  began  new  fac- 
tions, and  a  great  part  of  that  country  being 
burned  and  plundered,  he  conferred  the 
lordship  on  Theobald  Mulloy,  Arthur's  bro- 
ther, who  gave  his  sou  as  a  pledge  that  he 
should  be  faithful  to  the  queen."  It  may 
have  been  that  peculiar  severity  was  exer- 
cised by  .Sir  Henry  Sidney  against  this  clan, 
inasmuch  as  their  chief  had.  according  to 
the  authority  of  the  ahove-mentioiu'd  his- 
torian, "  sworn  alleffiiinee  in  the  preceding 
year,  1557,  to  the  queen,  and  givi^n  pledges," 

bring  up  their  children  in  the  same."  (Vide 
Lodge's  I'eerage,  Loinhin  edition,  I7.)4"). 

And  we  further  read  (in  the  same  work,  vol.  ii. 
p.  j'.'j)  that  in  April,  l.i76,  tlie  Lord  Deputy  Sid- 
ney, in  his  account  to  the  lords  of  the  council  of 
the  state  of  nflnirs  in  the  province  of  Connaiight, 
infonns  them,  that  Mac  William  Kwghter  (Sir 
Uichard  Hourke,  ancestor  to  the  Karls  of  Mavo, 
elected  Lord  iMac  William  Ougbter  in  l-iii'J) 
"  very  iviljingly  came  in  to  him,"  and  '•  I  found 
him,"  says  he,  "  verv  sensible,  though  wanting  the 
Englitli  tongue,  yet  understanding  the  Latin,"  &c.

being  caused  so  to  do  by  Tliomas  Radcliffe, 
Earl  of  Sussex,  then  lord  lieutenant  of  Ire- 
land. Indeed  we  are  told  by  Sir  James 
Ware,  that  fifteen  years  previously,  namely 
1541,  "  almost  all  the  fireat  ones  of  the  Irisli 
extraction  did  likewise  submit  themselves 
to  the  Lord  Deputy  St.  Leger,  and  took  the 
oath  of  alle<;iance,  as  O'CarroU,  O'Moore, 
O'Mu/toy,  O'Conor,  &c.  &c." 

In  the  "  Desiderata  Curiosa  Hibernica," 
(p.  63),  we  find  it  stated  as  follows :  "  The 
natives  tu  be  tied  upon  a  jiroviso  of  forfeiture, 
neither  to  take  upon  them  any  Irish  names 
of  scigno7-y,  as  O'Kooke,  O'MuUoy,  &c.  &c. 
&c.  nor  set  up,  nor  assist  any  to  usurp  these 
names  ;  "  so  jealous  were  the  English  of  the 
hereditary  claims  and  dignities  by  which 
the  Milesian  dynasts  evidenced  the  supe- 
riority of  their  rig;hts,  over  those  which  the 
former,  as  settlers,  merely  derived  from 

In  that  rare  and  invaluable  MS.  entitled, 
"  Annals  of  the  Four  Masters,"  which  has 
never  been  but  partiaUij  translated  into 
English,  and  which  is  deposited  in  the  library 
of  the  Royal  Irish  Academy,  a  very  curious 
list  is  to  be  found  of  all  the  chiefs  of  the 
great  Milesian  families  who  were  entitled 
to  attend  the  parliament  of  the  whole  king- 
dom in  the  year  1585.  This  is  a  remark- 
able period  in  Irish  history,  no  other  than  a 
Pale  Parliament  having  been  previously 
held  in  Ireland.  In  this  list  Conall  O'Mul- 
loy  (the  then  chief  of  Fercall)  is  expressly 
mentioned.  Conall  subsecpiently  surren- 
dered his  lands  to  Queen  Elizabeth,  and 
had  a  re-grant  thereof  by  patent  in  1590. 
A  younger  son  of  this  ancient  Sept, 

Capt.  Anthony  Mulloy  (thirty-third  in 
descent  from  Frachada,  son  of  Niall  of  the 
nine  hostages,  and  tenth  from  Hugh  Mor, 
or  Great  O'Mulloy,  lord  of  the  territory  of 
Fercall,  chief  of  his  name)  emigrated  to  the 
county  of  Roscommon  in  the  early  part  of 
Elizabeth's  reign,  and  d.  20th  July,  1603. 
Tradition  affirms  that  Capt.  Anthony  Mulloy 
was  sent  into  Connaught  with  powers  but 
little  inferior  to  those  of  the  president  of 
that  province,  and  he  is  sometimes  erro- 
neously mentioned  as  the  president  himself. 
It  is  likely  he  was  provost  marshal,  as  he  is 
constantly  depicted  in  the  most  sanguinary 
colours.  This  office  was  some  years  after 
licld  by  Sir  Charles  Coote,  father  of  the 
first  Earl  of  Mountrath. 

Capt.  Anthony  Mulloy  (commonly  called 
(ireen  Mulloy,  from  the  colour  of  his  uni- 
form) procured  a  large  grant  of  land,  in- 
cluding the  manor  of  Urthaheera  (now 
Coote  Hall),  Hughstown  (the  seat  of  the 
present  Coote  Mulloy,  esq.)  &c.&c.  He  m.

of  Roscommon,  knight  of  the  shire  and  go- 
vernor of  that  county."  At  a  meeting  of 
all  the  gentlemen  of  Roscommon,  held  at 
Ballintnbber,  at  which  Sir  Lucas  Dillon  pre- 
sided, we  findhis  name  enumerated  (together 
with  the  names  of  Sir  Ulick  Bourke,  Sir  L. 
Dillon,  Sec.  &c.)  amongst  those  who  attended 
and  took  an  oath  "  for  maintaining  the  king's 
prerogative  and  the  Romish  religion."  He 
m.  Margaret  Clifi'ord,  and  had  four  sons  and 
three  daughters,  viz.

him.  He  became  subsequently 
governor  of  Athlone,  and  being 
sent  to  England  with  the  troops 
appointed  to  oppose  William's 
landing,  was  made  prisoner  and 
confined  in  the  castle  of  Chester, 
where  he  died  in  1690,  leaving,

Theobald  Mulloy  (called  by  corruption 
Tobias),  wlio  held  the  coraniissioii  ol'  cap- 
tain of  horse  in  King  William's  army  at 
the  battle  of  the  IJoyne  (1690).  It  is  stated 
that  Capt.  Mulloy,  perccivinp;  William's 
horse  shot,  roile  up  aiid  jjave  his  own  charger 
to  the  king,  and  that  for  this  seasonable 
service  his  majesty  requested  he  would  call 
at  his  tent  after  the  action,  and  choose  what- 
ever horse  he  pleased  from  tlie  royal  stud. 
Mulloy  selected  one  called  Kaiser,  the  king's 
favourite,  which  William  cheerfully  gave 
him,  with  the  housings  and  pistols.  This 
horse,  which  lived  to  be  forty  years  of  age, 
never  was  allowed  to  be  ridden  by  any  but 
the  old  captain,  and  when  he  began  to  get 
stiff,  was  let  run  for  life.  He  became  so 
familiar,  that  he  used  to  come  to  the  hall 
door  and  eat  bread  out  of  the  hand. 
Theobald,  alias  Tobias  Mulloy,  appears  in 
the  list  of  gentlemen  attainted  by  the  ill- 
fated  James,  and  in  an  act  for  raising  the 
sum  of  £120,(100  on  all  lands,  tenements,

He  married  twice:  by  his  first  wife,  a  daugh- 
ter of  Sir —  King,  he  had  no  issue  ;  but  by 
the  second,  Frances  Marlowe,  he  had  two 
sons,  Chakles,  his  heir,  and  William,  who

officers  were  raising  recruits,  was  persuaded 
to  fight  for  the  deposed  monarch,  and  had 
the  singular  fate  of  being  taken  i)risoiier  by 
a  party  of  the  regiment  of  horses  in  which 
his  father  was  captain,  at  the  battle  of  the

1720,  cornet  in  Hamilton's  dragoons.  This 
gentleman  was  considered  a  person  of  sucli 
solid  judgment  as  to  be  frequently  appointed 
sole  arbitrator  iindiT  the  court  of  chancery, 
and  his  decisions  «eri-  ever  known  to  he 
reversed.  The  then  lord  chancellor  used 
to  say,  "  that  one  suih  man  in  every  county 
would  prove  a  national  blessing."

place  he  was  rector),  iu  April,  1832. 

Mr.  Mulloy  d.   10th  February,   1825,  and 

was  s.  by  his  eldest  son,  the  present  Coote 

Mi'LLOY,  esq.  of  Huobstown. 

The  office  of  liereditary  standard  bearer  to 
the  crown  of  England  in  Ireland,  vests  in 
this  family,  and  Mr.  Mulloy,  of  Oak  Port, 
is  in  possession  of  a  drawing  copied  from  an 
original  entry  made  in  a  record  in  the  office 
of  arms  (Dublin  Castle),  by  Thomas  Pres- 
ton, esq.  Ulster  king  at  arms,  in  the  year 
1634,  and  attested  by  Sir  William  Betham 
(the  presentUlster),  representing  O'Mulloy 
invested  with  the  coat  armour  proper  to  his 
office,  mounted  upon  a  steed  richly  capari- 
soned, bearing  in  his  hand  the  standard  of 
England,  and  upon  his  shield  the  family 
arms.  The  posterity 
of  Hugh  Mor  (or 
great )  O '  Mulloy, 
Lord  of  Fircal,  hay- 
ing failed  in  the 
elder  line,  in  the 
person  of  Conall 
O'Mulloy,  chief  of 
his  name,  and  Lord 
of  Fercall  (or  Fir- 
cal) in  the  reign  of 
Queen  Elizabeth, 
(vide  O'Mulloy  pe- 
digree,office  of  arms) 
the  honours  of  pri- 
mogeniture devolve 
upon  the  posterity  of  Captain  Anthony  Mul- 
loy, who,  as  we  have  already  stated,  was  the 
first  of  the  O'Mulloys  who  settled  in  Con- 
naught,  and  tenth  in  descent  in  the  younger 
line  from  the  said  Hugh  Mor. 

Coote  Mulloy,  esq.  of  Hughstown  (the 
lineal  descendant  of  Captain  Anthony)  is 
therefore  the  present  chief  of  his  name,  and 
consequently  hereditary  standard  bearer  to 
the  crown  of  England  in  Ireland.  The  present 
O'Mulloys  in  the  King's  county  belong  to  a 
branch  junior  to  that  of  which  Captain  An- 
thony was  the  founder,  (vide  O'Mulloy  pe- 
digree, office  of  arms).  Brewer,  in  his 
"  Beauties  of  Ireland,"  adverts  to  this  cir- 
cumstance (see  vol.  ii.  Leinster,  King's 
county),  by  observing  that  "  O'Mulloy,  of 
Wyhteheese,  county  of  Roscommon,  (which 

place  is  now  called  Coote  Hall)  is  supposed 
to  be  the  chief  of  the  naine  of  O'Mulloy. 
When  it  recollected  that  William,  commoniy 
called  the  Great  O'Mulloy,  was,  as  has  been 
already  stated,  present  at  a  meeting  of  the 
Roscommon  gentlemen,  held  at  Balintobber, 
in  the  year  1641,  and  that  he  was  one  of 
those,  who,  upon  that  occasion,  took  an 
oath  for  maintaining  the  Roman  Catholic 
religion  (vide  the  above  mentioned  peerage, 
vol.  iv.  p.  192),  it  becomes  scarcely  matter 
of  surprise,  that  in  the  great  rebellion  which 
broke  out  the  following  year,  the  possessions 
of  this  chieftain  (if  such  he  may  be  denomi- 
nated) should  have  been  forfeited.  These 
possessions  consisted  of  the  grant  already 
stated  to  have  been  made  to  Captain  An- 
thony Mulloy  (Ee'izabeth's  reign),  and 
were  known  by  the  name  of  Urthaheera, 
which  large  tract  of  country  fell,  during  the 
rebellion,  into  the  hands  of  the  Cootes,  of 
whom  the  first  that  obtained  a  footing  in 
Connaught,  was  Sir  Charles  Coote,  father 
to  the  first  Earl  of  Mouutrath,  and  brother 
to  Richard,  Lord  Colooney. 

A  division  of  that  part  of  the  manor  of 
Coote  Hall,  which  still  retains  the  name, 
has,  by  purchase,  latterly  become  the  pro- 
perty of  Hugh  Barton,  esq.  from  whom  Mr. 
Mulloy,  of  Oak  Port,  holds  it  by  lease.  An 
extensive  portion  of  the  former  manor  of 
Coote  Hall,  now  simply  called  Ballyfer- 
moyle,  has  also  by  purchase  come  into  the 
possession  of  the  Oak  Port  family.  Thus 
time  has  rendered  to  the  descendants  of  the 
original  proprietors,  the  justice  of  restoring 
to  them  part  of  the  domains  of  their  ances-

LESLIE,  CHARLES-POWELL,  esq.  of  Glasslough,  in  the  county  of  Monaghan, 
b.  13th  September,  1821,  succeeded  his  father  15th  November,  1831. 


John  Lf.slip.,  the  founder  of  the  Glass- 
lough branch  of  l\\f  Lrslii-  family,  in  In'- 
land,  adi'sccndant  of  tlic  house  of  Halqiihuir, 
in  Abcrdi'cnsblrc.  was  l)orn  in  the  north  of 
.Scotland,  iiiid  cducati-d  first  at  Aberdeen 
and  then  at  Oxiord.  f)f  this  distintjuislied 
divine  we  have  the  follnwinc  interesting 
account  in  Sir  .lames  Ware's  History  of 
Ireland,  edited  by  Harris.  "  .lobii  Leslie 
spoke  rreneli,  Spanisli,  and  Italian,  with 
the  same  propriety  and  flui'iuy  as  the  na- 
tives ;  anil  was  so  (;riMt  a  master  of  the 
Latin  that  it  is  said  of  him,  when  be  was  in 
Spain,  "  .SWiM  Lrsleiiu  l.aliiic  lixfiiitiir." 
Ill-  eiintiiinid  twenty-two  yenr»  abroail.  and 
diiriii);  that    time   was  at  the  sii'^e  ul    l{u 

chclle  and  the  expedition  of  the  Isle  of 
Rhee,  with  the  Duke  of  Bui^kiiigbam.  He 
was  all  along  conversant  in  courts,  where 
he  learned  that  address  which  gave  a  pe- 
culiar grace  even  to  his  preaching.  These 
accomplisliinents  obtained  biin  the  favour  of 
many  i)rineis  abroad  ;  and  at  home  he  was 
|iartieiilarly  happy  in  that  of  A'lHjr  CllARLF.s 
L,  who  adnntted  him  into  his  privy  council, 
both  in  .Scotland  and  Ireland,  in  which  sta- 
tions be  was  contiiuied  by  A'iiii/ CllAltLES  H. 
after  the  restoration  of  the  royal  family. 
His  chief  ])referinent  in  the  church  of 
Scotland  was  the  bishoprick  of  Orkney, 
called  the  bishoprick  of  the  Isles,  from 
whence  he  was  translated  to  Raphoc,  on  the 
1st  .June,  l(i;);j,  and  was  the  same  year  ad- 
mitted into  the  privy  council  of  Ireland. 
When  be  (irst  came  to  Haphoe,  he  found 
the  revenues  of  it  engrossed  into  the  hands 
of  several  gentlemen,  who  ctnnbined  to- 
getbi'r  to  maintain  what  they  had  gotten. 
Hut,  by  an  expensive  lawsuit,  he  retrieved 
the  rights  and  estate  of  the  see,  and  in- 
creased the  income  of  it  nearly  one-third. 
He  built  a  stately  palace  in  his  diocese  for 
hiinself  and  his  suitcessors,  contriving  it  fur 
strength  as  well  as  beauty,  which  proved 
to  be  useful  afterwards  in  the  rebellion  of 
Kill,  and  preserved  u  good  part  of  that 
eoiintry,  particularly  those  under  his  pro- 
tection in   bis  dioccKC.      Vet  he   would    not 



take  niililary  command  on  him,  as  judging 
it  not  suitable  to  liis  functions  ;  though  up- 
on occasions  we  are  told  that  he  performed 
the  office  of  a  general,  and  even  ventured  to 
expose  his  own  person,  as  particularly  in 
the  case  of  Sir  Ralph  Gore,  who  was  be- 
sieged in  Maglierelwt/,  and  reduced  to  great 
extremities.  When  the  Lagan  forces,  con- 
sisting of  three  regiments,  refused  to  hazard 
themselves  for  the  relief  of  him  and  his 
party,  yet  tliis  bishop  with  his  company, 
tenants  and  friends,  sallied  forth  amidst  the 
flames  of  the  whole  country,  relieved  the 
besieged,  and  evidenced  in  the  action  as 
much  personal  valour  as  regular  conduct. 

After  tlie  declension  of  the  king's  cause  in 
England,  he  raised  a  foot  company  lor  his 
majesty  in  Ireland,  and  maintained  them, 
both  officers  and  soldiers,  at  his  own  charge. 
He  afterwards  endured  a  siege  in  his  castle 
of  Raphoe,  before  he  would  surrender  it  to 
Oliver  Cromwell,  and  held  out  the  last  in 
tliat  country.  After  the  king's  restoration, 
he  hastened  with  so  much  zeal  to  see  him, 
that  he  rode  from  Chester  to  London  in 
twenty-four  hours. 

He  was  translated  to  the  see  of  Clogher  j 
on  tlie  17lh  June,  1661  ;  and  it  is  said,  the 
king  would  afterwards  have  given  him  more 
profitable  preferments,  bat  he  excused  him- 
self, resolving  to  end  his  labours  among 
those  with  whom  he  had  suffered,  and  where 
his  influence  was  most  powerlul. 

He  was  a   person  of  great  temperance, 
and  so  great  a   stranger  to  covetousness, 
that  he  hardly  understood  money,  which, 
however,  he  employed  to  the  best  uses.   He 
wrote  on  the  art  of  memory,  and  several 
other  curious  and  learned  treatises,  which 
were  designed  for  the  public,  but  were  all 
destroyed  with  his  library,  of  many  years 
collection,  and  several  manuscripts,  which 
lie  had  gained  in  foreign  countries,  partly 
by  tlie  rapine  of  tlie  Irish,  and  partly  by 
Jui>(/  William's  army,  in  1690,  long  after 
his  death.   He  d.  at  liis  seat  at  Castlelesley, 
alius  Glassloiu/h,  in  September,  1671,  and 
was  there  buried  in   a  church  of  his  own 
building,  which  he  had  procured  to  be  made 
a  parish  church  by  act  of  parliament,  and 
consecrated  to  St.  Salvator.     He  was  reck- 
oned at  the  time  of  his  death  the  oldest  bishop 
then  in  the  world,  having  been  so   about 
fifty  years,  from  the  time  of  his  promotion 
to  the  bishoprick  of  the  Isles  till  the  time  of 
his  death."     His   lordship's   son   and   suc- 

Charles  Le;sl!e,  was  admitted  a  fellow 
commoner  in  the  college  of  Dublin  in  1664, 
where  he  continued  till  he  commenced  mas- 
ter of  arts,  and  then  entered  the  Temple,  in 
London,  where  he  devoted  himself  to  the 
study  of  the  law  ;  but  after  pursuing  it  some 
years,  he  at  length  declared  himself  so 
"much  disgusted  with  a   professional  casu- 

istry, always  on  that  side  of  the  question 
which  bears  the  golden  fruit,  that  he  re- 
linquished the  legal  profession,  in  1680, 
entered  into  holy  orders,  and,  in  1687,  be- 
came chancellor  of  the  cathedral  of  Con- 
At  the  Revolution  refusing  to  take 

the  oaths  to  Kiny  William,  he  wasdeprived 
of  his  preferment,  and  followed  the  for- 
tunes of  the  exiled  monarch.  Eventually, 
however,  after  having  undergone  many  diffi- 
culties through  good  and  bad  report,  he 
returned  to  Ireland  in  1721,  and  died  the 
March  following,  at  his  seat  Glasslough, 
where,  in  the  beginning  of  the  year  1689, 
there  had  been  a  brisk  skirmish,  wherein 
nearly  two  hundred  of  the  Irish  were  slain. 
Mr.  Leslie  wrote  a  great  number  of  theo- 
logical tracts  and  political  papers,  intended 
to  serve  the  cause  and  party  he  had  em-

This  family  is  of  Saxon  origin,  and  held 
Folefort,  as  it  is  written  in  Domesday  Book, 
from  which  place  the  name  is  derived.  Here, 
as  it  appears  by  records,  as  well  as  registries 
in  the  College  of  Arms,  they  were  seated  in 
the  time  of  Richard  I.,  and  have  continued 
in  possession  of  the  same  name,  in  the  male 
line,  by  uninterrupted  desceutduring  the  long 
period  of  more  than  six  hundred  years.  The 
mansion,  which  is  a  quadrangular  pile  of 
building,  is  still  in  good  repair,  though  one 
of  the  most  ancient  in  the  west  of  England  ; 
standing  in  a  park  well  diversified  with  fine 
timber,  and  with  extensive  woods  and  planta- 
tions around  it.  Tliis  house  was  garrisoned 
for  Charles  I.,  and  was  taken  by  a  part  of 
Fairfax's  army  under  the  command  of  Col. 
Okey,  in  December,  1645.  Many  knights  of 
the  family  distinguished  themselves  in  the 
Holy  Land,  SirBaldwin  de  Fnlford  more  par- 
ticularly. Sir  Thomas  Fulford  was  one  of 
the  knights  who  went  up  with  the  Earl  of 
Devon  and  relieved  Exeter  when  besieged 
by  Peikin  Warbeck,  in  1497. 

According  to  the  records  in  the  Heralds' 
Office  we  find  the  first  of  the  family  is

a  justice  of  the  peace  for  the  county,  and  an  alderman  for 
the  city  of  Hereford. 


The  constant  tradition  of  this  family  has 
been  that  they  descend  from  a  younger 
branch  of  the  Picton  House,  but  after  much 
laborious  investigation,  nothing  has  been 
ascertained  capable  of  throwing  any  light 
on  the  point  in  question.  That  they  are  of 
Welsh  origin  is  however  certain,  it  having 
been  proved  by  family  evidences  still  in 
existence,  that  they  were  possessed  of 
lands  in  the  parish  of  Disserth,  in  Radnor- 
shire about  the  middle  of  the  reign  of  Eli- 
zabeth, whence,  later  in  the  same  reign, 
they  removed  into  Herefordshire,  still  re- 
taining possession  of  the  Radnorshire  pro-

t  Mr.  Melting  was  a  royalist,  and  one  of  the 
contributors  to  the  distresses  of  the  king  when  at 
Oxford  in  1644,  at  the  period  of  the  invasion  of 
the  Scots,  as  appears  from  the  subjoined  document 
in  the  possession  of  ]Mr.  Phillipps,  of  Longworth. 
It  is  curious,  as  containing  the  king's  sign  manual, 
as  well  as  the  autograph  of  the  lord  keeper  (Lyt- 
tleton)  and  Sir  Henrv  Lingen,  then  high  sheriff, 
and  one  of  the  principal  sufferers  in  the  royal 
cause  in  the  county  of  Hereford.  The  following  is

Lieutenant-Colonel  Spens  succeeded  to  the  representation  of  the  ancient  family  of 
Spens  of  Latliallan  on  the  demise  of  his  brother  in  1800. 




Tlip  faniily  of  Spens  is  of  very  high  anti- 
quity ill  Scotland,  and  in  the  opinion  of  some 
authors,  descended  from  a  younger  son  of 
the  Earl  of  Fife,  as  it  had  lieen  in  the  use  of 
carrying  in  its  armorial  bearings  the  lion 
rampant  of  the  great  MacdnlV,  which  denotes 
descent  from  that  illustrious  house. 

There  were  many  considerable  free  barons 
of  the  name  of  Spens,  who  made  a  good 
figure  both  at  home  and  abroad,  several  cen- 
turies ago,  but  that  of  Lathallan  is  docu- 
mented for  three  or  four  generations  before 
any  of  the  others  existid. 

The  Spcnses  of  Kilspindy,  who  are  un- 
doubtedly descended  ot  Lathallan,  made  a 
considerable  figure  in  the  rcigus  of  Kinys 
Jamks  I.  and  II.  but  are  now  extinct. 

The  Spenses  of  JJodham,  in  Aberdeen- 
shire, wliich  still  exist,  have  been  free 
barons  ever  since  the  time  of  .James  III.  and 
several  other  Spenses  in  the  same  county; 
also  tlie  Spenses  of  Berryhole,  in  Fife,  &c. 
&c.  are  all  descended  of  Lathallan,  which 
their  armorial  bearing  testifies. 

The  family  of  Wolmerslon,  another  great 
branch  of  the  name  of  Spens,  produced 
many  worthy  patriots,  who  did  honour  to 
their  country,  both  in  the  cabinet  and  in  the 
field,  and  had  also  the  lion  rampant  in  their 
armorial  hearings. 

Count  de  Spens,  who  ranked  amongst  the 
first  of  the  Swedish  nobility,  and  was  gene- 
ralissimo of  their  forces,  descended  from  the 
hyuse  of  Wolmerston,  but  that  branch  of  the 
family  is  now  entirely  extinct  in  Scotland. 

Tilt)  immediate  ancestor  of  the  family  of 

Hkmiv  df.  Spens,  who  flourished  in  the 
reign  of  Aim/  .\i.i-.\\nui.k  III.  was  compel  led 
with  most  of  the  nobility  and  gentry  of  Scol- 
iand,  to  submit  to  Kiikj  Fdu  uui  III.  in 
X'liMi.  Contemporary  with  this  Henry  lived 
Nicol  de  Spens,  wlio  was  also  forced  to 
swear  fealty  to  A'lW/  l)f)WAiin,  when  he  had 
overrun  Scotland  in  the  same  y<ar,  \'i'M'>, 
What  connexion  Henry  and  Nicol  had  with 
one  another  does  not  appear.  Henry  died 
soon  after  the  year  IJitKI,  and  was  succeeded 
by  his  son, 

Thomas  dp.  Spens,  who  in  the  reign  of 
RoiiKUT  Hm  CI ,  is  inenti(MU(l  in  a  charter  of 
donation  to  the  inonasli'ry  of  Soltray,  toge- 
ther with  Sir  Uidicrt  Krilh,  great  marishall 
ofScotland,  Sir  Kichard  Keith,  his  brother, 
and  Juhn  Kiilh,  his  son,  \c.  Sic.  This 
('barter  has  no  date,  but  appears  to  have  been 
granted  about  the  year  IJl'itl.  He  is  witness 
in  another  I'harter  to  Ihi'  s.ime  monastery, 
with  thi' said  Sir  Itobert  Keith,  itc.  This 
charter  also  wants  a  dale,  but  must  have 
been  in  or  before  IH.TJ,  in  whirh  year  Sir 
Hobert  Keith  lost  his  life  lighting  in  defence 

of  the  liberties  of  his  country,  at  the  disas- 
trous battle  of  Duplin.  Thomas  de  Spens 
died  shortly  after,  and  was  succeeded  by  his 

William   df,  Spens,  who  is  mentioned  in 
an  authentic  writ  in  favour  of  his  son,  here- 
after narrated.     He   left   issue,    two   sons, 
William,  his  heir. 

AValter  de  Spens,  who  is  witness  in  a 
will  of  the  Bishop  of  Aberdeen,  toge- 
ther with  Robert,  Earl  of  Fife  and 
Monteath,  anno    I38'2,    but    we   can 
give  no  account  of  his  posterity. 
William  died  in   the    end  of  the  reign   of 
David  Buuce,  and  was   succeeded  by   his 
eldest  son, 

William  df,  Spens,  who  was  proprietor  of 
the  lands  and  barony  of  Lathallan,  in  Fife- 
shire,  and  several  others,  of  which  the  Earls 
of  Fife  were  superiors,  till  the  forfeiture  of 
Murdock,  Duke  of  Albany  and  Earl  of  Fife, 
in  \A-2C),  after  which  this  family  held  these 
lands  of  the  crown,  and  Lathallan  hath  been 
their  chief  seat  and  title  ever  since  the  reign 
of  RiiBKKT  II.  He  married  Isabel,  daugh- 
ter and  heiress  of  Dunc.m  Campbell,  of 
Oleii-Douglas,  Tarbit,  S;c.  in  Itunibarlon- 
shire.  This  is  instructed  by  a  precept  for 
infefling  "William  de  Spens  (therein  de- 
signed son  of  William)  and  Isabel  Camp- 
bell, his  spouse,  in  the  lands  of  Atlialand, 
Kittedie,  and  Craig-Sanguhar,  in  the  county 
of  Fife,  also  the  lands  of  (ilcn-Douglas,  &c. 
in  Dumbartonshire,  and  some  tenements  in 
and  about  the  town  of  Perth,  &c."  The  pre- 
cept is  dated  the  .Oth,  and  the  sasiue  follow- 
ing thereon,  the  Kith  May,  I3K;>. 

In  consecpience  of  this  marriage  the  family 
of  Lathallan,  with  several  of  their  cadets, 
added  to  their  arms  girony  of  eight,  the  pa- 
ternal coat  of  the  fainilj   of  Argyll. 

We  shall  only  further  observe  that  many 
descendants  of  this  family  have  carried  lo- 
zenges or  masdes,  as  well  as  the  lion,  in 
their  armorial  bearings. 

This  William  entered  into  an  indenture 
with  Duncan,  Earl  of  L<nnox,  and  with  the 
consent  of  the  said  Isabel  Campbell,  his 
spouse,  let.s  to  the  said  earl  for  his  lifetime, 
allenarly,  part  of  the  lands  of  (jlen-Doug- 
las,  Tarbit,  &lc.  for  six  merks  yearly  of  lack- 
duty,  S;c.  This  curious  deed  is  dated  at

Kniiirt,  Farl  of  Fife  and  Moiileith,  Sir  Pa- 
trick de  (Iraham,  Sir  Walter  Huchanaii,

William  de  Spens  afterwards  got  a  i'har-

William,  of  Lathallan,  lived  to  a  great  age  ; 
died  about  the  year  1432,  and  was  s.  by  his

John  de  Spens,  who  in  his  father's  life- 
time was  designated  of  Glen-Douglas,  which 
title  he  retained  as  long  as  he  lived.  He 
was  a  man  of  parts  and  spirit,  and  extremely

The  family  of  Tynte  has  maintained  for 
centuries  a  leading  position  in  the  West  of 
England  ;  of  its  surname  tradition  has  hand- 
ed down  the  following  derivation:  In  the 
year  1192,  at  the  celebrated  bnttle  of  Asca- 
lon,-a  young  knight  of  the  noble  house  of 
Arundel,  clad  all  in  white,  with  his  liorse's 
housings  of  the  same  colour,  so  gallantly 

distinguished  himself  on  that  memorable 
field,  that  Kichahd  Co-ur  de  Lion  remarked 
publicly  after  the  victory,  "  that  the  maiden 
knight  had  borne  himself  as  a  lion,  and  done 
deeds  equal  to  those  of  six  Croises  (or  Cru- 
saders)," whereupon  he  conferred  on  him, 
for  arms,  a  lion  gu.  on  a  field  arg.  between 
six    crosslets   of  the   first,  and  for   motto.
